Spring sprung

This piece was written for the Carrot Ranch’s double ennead challenge. Obviously this relates to winter in the northen parts of the northern hemisphere.

Sol sat solo, silent,

in his melting cell,

hatching his plan to flee his hibernation,

bring Winter’s reign down and

turn freeze into free.

Summer would soon follow,

(he would scorch the earth)

but a more compelling task was now at hand,

bring life to seeming dead

seeds in fertile earth.

‘Arise the Thor of thaw.’

‘Freedom’ did he cry.

He rent the prison’s icy bars asunder,

re-leaved trees in green and

set the waters free.
