Poem – “A Frail Breath of Winter” – Romanticism – 2/23/2021

Stain, upon the blank shore,
Where your mouth was.
A singular kiss
Drawn to the sand,
Crawling to the land,
Flown free
From unfolded hands.

Simplest imagery
Of unbroken symmetry.
Symbols of language
Bled from bandaged hearts.
Sickness and disuse
Of bodies severely limping
Backwards, on a rope
To dual helpless faces.

You can create
The sentences
For our distant recollection,
Placing eyes to the falling skies,
Leaking sin from our pores.
By a frail breath of this winter
Where trees sigh more
Than ever the kiss, to the shore.
