Found Poem - Silence & Snow

Tom Elenbaas

Found this poem in a journal from 2012:

Silence and Snow
At the Bitter End, 1-23-12

Silence and snow seem
somehow to belong to
one another. Solitude, like
a heavy coldness falls.
Forced solitude like a 
solitary confinement
of the soul sweeps in 
like a coldfront
an icy gaze to a bone
core chill not easily shaken.
  Snow falls
          Covering silently
      Ground quickly
      Covered by solitude.

What can survive until spring?
