A Time of Cloud-Fall: Katherine L. Gordon

A Time of Cloud-Fall

Cloud-fall wraps the woods
in hush of waiting
for the season to decide,
January whimpers wet
the fierce of winter dissipated.
Cult of bards silenced
though thoughts sustain
bridging treacherous roads,
a time when words re-form
a language yet to be heard
as all the touch-stones melt -
no bog no drift no ice no blizzard
to contend,
only a grey dissolution of ice memory
a longing to remember storied paths
though the feet slip, the roots twist,
a no-sun too soon spring
when the green-wood withers.

Katherine L. Gordon
rain-swept January 2013.
