Poem by Peg Simone First Published in MungBeing Magazine, Issue 36: Wildlife


Winter wears its heavy, velvet cloak of darkness
With a harsh and unforgiving smirk
It’s sharp metallic, chiseled teeth
Bare a tormenting, cruel smile
Darkness, grows unbridled in the Winter
Darkness, has no limits to where it can plunge the human spirit
Darkness, thrives through slow moving months
Gnawing at shards & glimpses of optimism
Darkness, shadows the sun and blankets its warm kiss
Darkness, needles the mind
Pokes numerous, tiny holes in the brittle frailty of a consciousness scraping for fire
Attempting to break through the solemnity
So futile and destructive the self medicated attempts
Of one waiting for the sun


from Witch Tree Road, released October 1, 2012
