Murmurs

Tucked within the season is a calm

a whisper of flakes brushing chill panes
in pallid light on snowy afternoons

a settling … a sigh of memory ...

a duvet of snow-feathers
to snuggle neath frosted stars
and December's Long Nights moon

I want to wish all my blogging friends and their families
 peace, love, joy and laughter for the upcoming holiday season. 
I'll see you next year!

Slip-Slow

It is not grief wearing you down
but the spoils of war
for even victors
have illusions shattered
by careless hearts

and in the dark recesses
of a troubled mind
questions have no answers
but nibble like mice
at spilled remains

and I could not lift you
high enough
for wisdom to reign upon you
nor should I

It is not grief wearing you down
but the spoils of war
hollow notes of victory ringing
over battles waged in distant places
by hands far removed from yours

and I will not lift you
from that place
of guilt and shame
but let you
slip-slow
into the mire
