Chells Memory 2

Wrapped in settling snow from the warm pink
Flakes upon flakes upon patterns and soft geometry
My dad pulls me and sled snow silent
Him the single shape through flake and flake

On getting in home the breath is extinguished
Warmth of different vapours the seer of hot aches
The weight of wet clothes but a discomfort
Sitting and steaming hands in the fire glow

Stars through my window danced upon by rime
Somewhere the full moon shine eases the dark
Covered I lay furtive with an unknown fear
The cold of the space whispered to this hero

The last few ...

Departure

He goes
Not walking away
- yawning -
Content as purity
- a ritual possession -
- not letting go -
spring afternoon
- sunshine -
Days unseasoned in his checked jacket

[Hata Bildir]
