Stripped barren the terse weather whipped out its lashing tongue.
The acidity frothed upon a frenzy abrasion eating away any civility.
Naked was the chill that bore the soul cold upon the mourning quill,
A reverberated skeletal frame groaned under its heavy mental strain.
Awake gravity that reigns forlorn to bear wilderness torn asunder,
Nail the fear scaring shadows that echo ghostly wraiths nevermore.
Lost souls upon graven tales that turns blood frigid in rigid hibernation.
Quick sand grains of reflective possessions crumble in lonely isolation.
Overcast cerebral gray fog hangs low to feel blank stares solitary wounds
Hemisphere voids wearing hollow sockets tear upon whether or knots,
Twisting taunt upon a tick tock clock mainspring awaiting spring renewal.
Thunder, oh thunder the elocution of writer’s blocks in four wall prisons.
Kneel in baptismal rains washing anew fountains spring of poetic youth,
Burn the pyre of winter graven words of stale air; open the coffin doors.
Awake poet onto stepping stone stanzas adrift dawning pastel livid images,
Vivid characters flow free through bare footprints on see shore tides.
Sail the wind currents of lines levitating vowels of enlightened character,
Creating medicinal cleansing harmonic heartbeats resonance alight revival.
Phoenix poet flame aloft solar celestial wings, break free of any restraints
Shatter cabin fever’s shackled conformity, skinny dip your birthday suit.
In a Declaration of Independence drifting free forevermore.
