Winter Woods
by Anna Davis

The winter woods—
They call to me.
Like a wolf among the pines,
They capture my mind and ignite my soul.
The way the moonlight
Reflects off birch-bark and cruel frost
Pulls the forest
Into me.
Leave me in the glacial winds
And stinging rain.
Leave me to this frozen landscape;
It shores up my soul.
The snow on the ground,
Like a million blazing stars fallen to Earth,
Brings me salvation—
Redemption from my past.
I seek not self-punishment
Or a beautiful pain,
But icy forest mornings
And nights of biting breeze.
Snow falls into my raven hair,
Frost on each pale lash.
I embrace the chill in these trees,
And give to it my stagnant blood.
