A time of death and decay
that makes me hopeful:
on your urn,
carved with the silhouette of a figure
that slowly becomes a bird flying south; and
crumbs of leaves returning
to the Earth,
a future-blooming home.
full of possibility.
Rest and repose ―
slow talks and
hot tea and
slippered feet ―
a life of padded steps and calm surrender
preceding spring, not knowing the concept
A clean blue question mark.
Inspired by lyrics from “Blue & Grey” and “Life Goes On,” I wanted to capture the recurring theme in BTS’s work that everything comes in cycles and endings are part of a larger narrative using the imagery of winter.

Thanks to @bybriakiara for the prompt “hot chills” and to BTS for their always-inspiring lyricism.
