A Midwinter’s Dream of Summer

A spark among the shadow grows
Kindled by reluctant trees
Beneath the azure sky it glows
Portent of night, the whisper of leaves

Crackling fervor, growth into light
Climbing branches one by one
Leaping in the mosquito night
Midair through flight becomes undone

Drifting wisp of tendrils slate
Higher without hesitation
Obscured until oncoming fate
Reveals a death of dissipation
