All else eclipsed (14th Oct 2020)

When sun cuts through 

The icey bite

When chill belies

The deep blue sky


When clouds float by

In singular form

When the ice underfoot

Submits to the warmth 


While wind chill cools

The blinded eyes 

The memories flood

From distant skies


My heart trips joy

From scenes recalled

On higher ground 

Where time lie paused 


And thus I sit 

Quite drenched in this 

Deluge of life 

All else eclipsed
