winter: shadorma

Summer flown

To warmer places

The long cold

Night bone dry

While limbs creak and skin seeps blood

magma stirs within


©️2018 Ontheland

Background: I started writing this shadorma (six-line poem with 3-5-3-3-7-5 syllables) at the end of November 2017, a month of shadormas. I ‘finished’ it yesterday.
