Frozen In Place


Stiff - immobile - frozen in place

Brutal winter of sub zero frost bite,

Where tongues stick to freezing metal

In still life being layered in ice-cold coatings.


Whirling wind whistles cold, cold chill bite,

Howls stiff icy sounds that snap in inert brittleness.

Moaning limbs crack crash in cold, cold amputation,

Hibernating cryonics of seasons evolving ice layered aging.


The sun overriding winter in spring thawing

To form icicles dripping into cascading rush of water.

Sap starts to bark it way up onto awaiting limbs

That bud alive in the dance of warm, warm breezes.


Swaying trees harmonize movements to blend with songbirds

Upon sunrise to sunset serenades of moving nature songs,

Where everything germinates to seed with another generation

Sprouting to gain a foothold survival before its dormancy

Of being Frozen in Place.


David Lester Young 10/07/10
