Becalmed

Burdened wood to carry away,
breath heard, and sigh afraid,
Snow melted down on surface,
and mountain still in haze:
What died, and broke inside,
nothing can bring that back—
Tried to make a dent,
found and opened a door,
Fragile part of fragment,
where emotions reside,
and rational broke on sorrow:
Lonely I wander here,
and in rain I shall go—
Becalmed sail in wind,
passed through edges of space,
Thunder lost in storm,
with burns and wounds,
flowing on walls:
Calm and silent, when torn apart,
and leaves left behind.
