A Brief Encounter

Love grows, flowers and dies in a timeless, endless cycle.
The winter of your absence

I hide and freeze

Entombed beneath the sheets of ice 

And sleep a thousand deaths


The springtime of your nascence

I wake and thaw

Swell and split with roots of white

Shoots of the brightest sheen


The summer of your presence

I thrive and bloom 

Bedecked is wondrous petalled shades

I burst and bear my fruit 


The autumn of your distance

I shrink and curl

Corrupted back into the earth

Embrace eternal winter
