Cold

Iced air freezes overhead
Tempting pick axes everywhere;

A shattering crack of clarity
To pierce the frozen boulder

Instead, I shiver with vulnerability
Exposed and bitten by the frost
Digging down still deeper
With desperate earnestness
Meek and soft and small, still
I forever seem to remain
Affixed by immutability
And silenced by the blizzard.
