wandering towards the river on a gray day

that could get no grayer,

i could vanish on these slushy streets.

my boots leave temporary marks in the shifting snow,

puddles that fill in as I step away

as if they were never there.

holding tight to my muse, i struggle to complete

myself against the falling clouds.

i fold and unfold myself

between the pages of tomes

and creases on roadmaps,

the lines along the highway

and the walls along the edge.

i fade into the landscape,

a tired gray tree above the frozen mud,

dead leaves piled at my feet.

locked in, frozen, stuck

iā€™m blanketed in cold but

the thaw must always come.

the earth takes herself back and grows,

echoing hope inside my head –

we shall have our colors again.

    I can say ‘positive progression leading to hope’ throughout the lines of your poetry there……
