First Poem of December, Just One More Breath

A lone flower,
Once ablaze with beauty,
Now trembles in the darkly sharp, snapping snow.

The wind catches her stale fragility,
Ripping at her petals,
While she smoulders her last breaths
And cries frozen tears.

In halcyon days
She would bring green blades
To their knees.
Now those blades adorn
A slender white armour,

That creeps closer,
Strangling her stem,
Swallowing her leafs,

Till the sun
Renders the snow
Motionless,

Letting a few
Withering sighs flutter.

But as the sun pales
The snow slithers again.
She attempts a scream,
If only flowers had mouths.
