long winters sleep

alone in my cabin

in the snow-swept woods

i wait in wonder

as a gray sun pulls down the sky

and darkness comes to rest my eyes

i sense the coming

of a long deep sleep

shallow breathing

thoughts receding

allowing

my soul to steep

in the quiet darkness

of a winter’s night

i say

good night, 

dear friends,

good night
