“Solitary Strains”

winter rain whispers
pine fire snaps
ancient forest creaks and moans
song of silence all around

pine fire snaps
awakens the senses
brings light into the darkness

ancient forest creaks and moans
soft sounds that muffle
even fainter footsteps on icy stone

song of silence all around
swaddles the spirit
gives strength in solitude


Another trimeric, this time written with some of flipside records’ poetic words.

  1. This is beautiful! I especially love these lines:

    “winter rain whispers”

    “pine fire snaps” (my favorite)

    “even fainter footsteps on icy stone”

    “song of silence all around swaddles the spirit”
