Cascading Snow-flakes

A morning blizzard of hailstones

Smothers my old frozen bones

Polarised, I’m shivering head to spine

Chilling my chasms of hard lines


Daily coldness unwrapping

Mid-morning thawing, eventually happening

Melting, my eternal iceberg breaks

Into an avalanche of cascading snow-flakes


Covering me in a white blanket of crystal firestones

Gradually warming my lonesome bones

Turning my purple blood into glowing red

Clearing heavy fogginess from my head.
