numbing nirvana----read write poem/monday poetry train

brittle branches bent over
with weight of weather,
snow forms a cover over green earth-
protective or damaging,
depending on how one sees.
looking with misted eyes
at hazy images of my neighbourhood trees
standing tall, not giving in to chill;
I think of emerald warmth-
a fleeting image receding as quickly.
shivering a litle,
I shed a few more tears,
which dry on me
by forming icicles.
numbness can only bring nirvana
I am rendered senseless,
my last coherent thoughts being,
"another new day, brightening sun
can only bring new life,
a few leaves on my branches
will make me alive in no time"
before falling apart on hard ground.
Ride the Monday Poetry train too...
