Through the Year

This is the time when fireplaces are rekindled with life

As families bathe in the crackling warmth.

Steamy mugs come back in season,

Boots take over the concreate

Marching across the hard stones laid on upon your body.

Yet you rule over this estate with your glacial hands,

Smothering your subjects in a heavy white blanket

While snuffing out the kindness of the sun.

You lock us in your grip for an eternity, sucking away our souls

Until a miserable husk is left.

Crystalline mistress

 

Finally able to shed our furry skins

And be more in touch with you.

Feet break free of their oppressive cages; windows fly open.

Birds nestle in their homecoming perches,

Announcing each morn with a song of praise, whether we like it or not.

Yet, you too, will unknowingly torture your adoring crowd.

Hordes of insects will be unleashed upon our hides,

Feasting upon our vital fluid.

You’ll block our breath with poison petals.

Mother, why have you forsaken us?

 

True blue skies with no veil to dull its brilliance

Shall be the anthem of this time.

We flock to thousands to destinations,

Freed from our daily life responsibilities.

Flickering lights float lazily through the twilight atmosphere;

Easily captured and made into lanterns.

Even you have a dark side.

Sweltering moisture hangs in the air, restricting our lungs of its basic food.

Rainbow rays pound on naked skin, a ruddy rash breaking out on the surface.

Fevering bodies become comatose.

Golden Empresses

 

The winds are nipping at our sun kissed skin,

Time to grow back our furs.

Leaves dress themselves in their seasonal garb,

Crimson, gold, clementine,

Their floating deaths are tragically elegant, falling down, down into the void.

Tis the time of dying, and yet also a time for life.

Growers gather their crops for all to partake in.

You’ll slowly steal our life giving star,

Slowly replacing it with a chilling darkness.

Noses can’t breathe in your crisp air, for they clog up from your natural spices.
