Heat

veins of snow cover
the forgotten leaves;
pressed to the ground
by the weight of familiars.
tree trunks peel away
layers of autumn
and summer
and spring;
revealing their winter coat.
roots dig into the hard ground
away from the air,
the crisp breeze,
rattling frosted branches.
sheets of ice settle in to the earths skin.

burnt.
