WHEN THE WINTER MELTS

June 17, 2019

.

Someday when I’m free,

I’ll blossom like the gibbous

From the waning crescent face.

And set my colors raging

Upon the whispering world.

.

Someday when I’m free,

I’ll cease to stare at these seas.

And attempt to grow my own wings

Like Icarus shattering his restrains

To taste the skies before falling.
.

Someday when I’m free,

I won’t hesitate to mould that ink blotch

In the shape that sings my story,

Like the bold incisions in tree barks

That survived the subduing ice.
.

Someday when I am free,

I’ll wear this reality

The way I’ve weaved it in my dreams.

But not today, for right now-

I’m the spring waiting within the Winter.
