How full the sky

sunrise on january frost


How much splendour can the sky hold beneath its dome?

Frosted light glass-pure and pale pours from the crucible
of cold fire filtered through unburnable branches.

This is what wakes the sluggish blood the fleeting traces
of warm life running to shrug off the chill the shaking
of feathers, this beauty that has no end.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
