No Melting Here

March 14, 2012 by A.J. Huffman in Poetry

The flakes scatter.

And I imagine myself

one of the flurry’s pack.


to rejoin

my falling comrades.

I spin and sputter.

Through the wind’s misdirection.

It was never an artist.

It cannot begin

to understand

the strength.

Of the blue.

Driving my frenzied white.



Tempting the sun.

I refuse to break.

My run is my will.

And I am more than willing.

To dissolve.

For the cause.
