Winter's Crown

winter’s crown...

icy
candelabra;

glistening beacon,
sending signals
into the
cimmerian tundra;

radiant buoys
on the ocean
of the void…

although
she is quiet,
she is
not forgotten;

please
do
not
disturb
the deep
disturbances…

for herein lay
all manner of
earthly delights;

immure

nestled,  
under flesh
under bone
under ground,

listening to
the fading
winter whispers,

laying in wait
for the
grand emergence.

winter’s crown;

bright,
as are deep
her roots
in darkness....
