Melt Death Away

mother nature
spits when she talks

snow and hail
hit my face
as she laughs
her freezing breath
into my face

it smells of ice
of nothing really

of the strange
lack of odours
because it all
froze to death

i wish for spring
the smell of life
as warmth melts
death away

for the sun
to wake the earth,
to fill my nostrils
my brain
my heart even
with the colours
the sounds
and the scents
of endless new starts
