Winter has left its feathered kiss,
Here between the frozen earth and azure sky.
As my body tilts with the earth away from the sun,
I feel the coldness of space press upon my existence.
I am but a mite in the grand web of life,
But rarely do I stop to consider it.
With footfalls of crunching snow,
My lungs draw in a freezing breath.
A part of this frozen world.
