The evening of the year

by Jem Croucher

as Autumn colours fade and die
The Summer’s warmth now distant
as the year it hurries by

December looms. Finality
Twenty-fifteen almost done
Now in the throws of Winter
the Spring has far to come

As Earth spins into seasons
We spun snow upon our feet
Immobile, white with frozen eyes
We breathe through cones
A smile, melting into our teeth

I have seen the strength you have
To stand even if your weakness shows
Trying to stay up no matter what comes
Bearing up to what God only knows.

Through The Storm

by wordypenguin

I’m too busy walking in a straight line
I’m not sure if this is my way
I’m too dizzy living in another time

Arctic Love

by Katie Simpson

I loved you for your
cold exterior, the opaque
fog that shielded your
rough innards from
the world. I wanted to

beneath scissor teardrops,
with taffy-stretched skin cells.
