The six o’clock alarm Breaks my slumber

Standing in the hushed silence Breath pluming in the frost filled air Beneath the deep velvet blue of the night sky

WINTER HELL

The lake is frozen, Nothing lives

My breath plumed in the frost filled air, As I stood in the hush of a winter night, Beneath the deep velvet blue of the night sky, Filled with a myriad of glistening stars And while I stand beneath its majesty
