In the Shadows – Haiku Poem


Long, looming shadows.
Impractical clothing days.
Crisp, cold, but sunny.

The darkness recedes;
ice crystals shrink from the light.
Energy transfers.

What was once frozen,
motionless, impervious.
Is restored, set free.

The clouds of my mind,
hold me captive in winter.
But this too shall pass.

The warmth of the world,
transfers to warmth of the soul.
Enlightens the mind.

Extra daylight hours
permits more life to be lived.
Though time will not wait.
