Oar Parcel

I had been in this dark so long, swirling about me like skirts,
Wings furled, hair curled, cringing and unswung
Furtive and fleeting under distant glimmers and smiles
Swathed so, I had almost forgotten myself amidst the

Sheet blizzards encased the sound and fury,
Bleating wildly
Life erupted in
Flame and Frost
Reimagined, and
I ,
Pierced by a shaft of fierce Glow
Awakened to a
Smoking husk of
Aged Self,
Side stepped and
Violet voiced,
Triumphantly live -
Defiantly Floating.
