… endure the Winter nude …

the katydids are fading
and the shadows grow
longer. the sleepyhead
sun drops quicker than
he did but a few short
weeks ago. weary with
words he silently vanishes.

trees wait to shed their
leafy clothes and endure
the Winter nude. unashamed
but not unaware, they
yearn for the frigid winds’
prickling against their aged skin.

i yearn for the cold snaps
of Winter to brush across my
bareness as well. and yours.
as the only warmth we feel
is between us. let Mr. Frost
freeze my body against
yours as the bright-eyed
heavens peep through
tiny holes in the black sky
at our lurid display.

i, too, would steal glances
at you my dear – and make
love to you against a frozen
earth. and like these towering
trees – with my eyes open.
