Late Winter

Northern fronts
Can be quite blunt
Back and forth
With a kick pass punt
-
Changing direction
Chiming windmills
Airbrushing sun tattoos
Before being stilled
-
Tears on my face
As I tend to the mill
But I’ve had fulfillment
In this long winters’ chill
-
For trust in God
The key to strength
Endurance, resilience
To go the length
-
Winter cloths
Caress with salve
Red cracked lips
At the frozen improv
-
The turning of pages
Brings love to the verse
Settling yesterdays’ bout
With the cold winters burst
