Specks of sunlight float in the air
A promise of spring
Sparkled through the morning…
Filling it with a lilac scent of hope
And new beginnings.
The fragile beauty of the world,
Take a deep breath, maybe two,
A little cough, maybe too much.
Creeping shadows swirl around
The horizon of your eye
Bleed their curly cobweb tails into your vision
Before they disperse into black snow
Speckled curtain blurs the world into a nauseous anxiety
When you realize it happened again
