Winter’s paradox

we stepped into the space
that was day.
shadows rolled in,
greedy,
they ate away the light,
pushed their prey
into the trap, where she was swallowed.

we fumbled
through the darkness
that made shrouded bodies
of everyday things. Lost
in it, and buried
and cold leaves
falling in the mist.

we caved in, curled in
to ourselves and stayed
still
as stone
waiting
for the return.
