Snow Vow

Verglas cheeks,
knees in snow,
veil coated eyes blinding the skies,
a growl inside,
tearing life's fabric,
or was it her dreams refusing to cry?

Frozen fists,
conifer sentinels unseen,
vowed intent excising lingering lies,
seething inside,
a howl brewing,
her self-respect refusing to die.

Life renewal,
thawing heart aglow,
ember eyes casting worry aside,
ready to try
a scream released,
her refusal to die while still alive.

About Christina Anne Hawthorne

Alive and well in the Rocky Mountains. I'm a fantasy writer who also dabbles in poetry, short stories, and map making. My Ontyre tales are an alternative fantasy experience, the stories rich in mystery, adventure, and romance. Alternative fantasy? Not quite steampunk. Not quite gothic. In truth, the real magic is in those who discover what's within.
