This was pretty meloncoly to me, exception the last glimmer of hope: the lone tulip! Ahhh..who says it has to rise alone? Nice work. Thanks for sharing. God bless ya, littlelight
Melancholy or not, your words are poetical and beautiful. I loved the tone you set and the descriptive language. My favorite lines were: "The mantle clock ticks by so slowly that I am certain there are forces seeking to make this darkest night an endless exercise in madness. I am certain I shall be a willing slave to such lunacy before the coming daybreak." Excellent work!
For some reason this reminded me of Ecclesiastes where it says everything is meaningless. This peice spoke to me on several levels to do with winter: physically, spiritually and emotionally. Yes, it was melancholy but the language was pure poetry. Well done.
