Fire and Ice

Sunlight on Antarctica

Burning the skin

Of long buried corpses

To bring them back to life

Unfreezing frosty souls

To give them wings

Like never seen before

 

I conquered myself

Excess oxygen inside

It was an autumn of decay

And now I hear them say:

All spring trees envy her
