Winter's battle

The towers move
fast along
on winds
far above

The branches sway
offering shelter
from the highest winds
far above

The land of trees
is ruffled by the breezes
from far away
beyond this vastest sea

The yellow stalks
of last year's grass
bare branches up aloft
bear testimony

A warning, that this is
a false spring
sprung to catch out
the unwary

Cold far away
is straining to move south
the ancient rocks
far north

Its battle fought afar
is lashing the ancient rocks
at the edge
of this vastest sea

As bare branches sway
in the land of trees
reminding us
It's yet winter
