Reprieve

Stillness surrounds me

Cocooned in darkness

I fall in dream’s dancing embers

On ancient coals I rest

Burning through my thin veil of flesh

They warm my cold insides

Visions of an unseen day illuminate the skies

The trees reach out their hands in invitation

The moon sighs in affirmation

The howling wind wraps ’round my frame and carries me away
