a winter long

an easy gate
slow breath of depth
a storm of wind
but her face set
a night of howls
ruffles the sleep
moon of unknown
that silent creep
a pregnant wait
doubt to be sure
no birds of song
long winter tour
the ice so thin
crack, the splinter
square her shoulders
shrugging the threat
the days are long
but spring is yet.

“What’s the price of a pet canary? Some loose change, right? And God cares what happens to it even more than you do. He pays even greater attention to you, down to the last detail—even numbering the hairs on your head! So don’t be intimidated by all this bully talk. You’re worth more than a million canaries.” -Matthew 10:29-31
