snow falls

In the gray folds of the world, a gleaming brightness emerges.
Diamond light shattering the illusions that had trapped my mind.
My heart is melting in the freezing cold. The wind sings new promises into my soul.
My blood is hotter, redder and more true.
I see that there are many spaces you can live in between the silenced words.
Snow falls. I feel renewed.
Snow falls. I can see beyond my once shielded vision.
Snow falls. I am free of limitations now.
Snow falls. Maybe there is beauty to starting over.
