January Winter – Aged Impressions


January ninth, winter now corrodes

memory with shifting weather –

The deep cold cracks open,

releasing a slow slide

towards mild weather, that drips,

drips, drips,

dripping downward

toward a pool of slippery

heaps, slushing away

to a false

sense of spring –



how raindrops laugh now,

where arctic breezes once sat,

what season is this ?
