Winter knocked on my door tonight
Shaking hands with every shingle…
The winds attack from all sides now
As Autumn airs and winter mingle.
Lifelong struggles begin anew,
Survival now, at any cost…
A time when every comfort known,
Recedes with every frost.
Wind whips the waves to a wild
Assault, eroding the cliff…
As other life forms cease to move,
Slowed, immobile, or frozen stiff.
