Trap


A shadow drifted into my life and stayed. Catching me unaware, nipping my heels, reminding me of forgotten errors and hasty ill-considered words.

leaves and thistledown
pursued by the wind—
autumn

Winter falls quickly in the tangled hills of the high country. Snow falls cover my tracks. Snug and warm within my cave I thought I had dodged the trap.

shadows
share my fire
and haunt my dreams
