The devil in winter
goes riding
over the gentle,
soft, virgin snow -
cloven footprints
burning along
on the trail
and a shiny, black
nightmare stallion -
pawing, snorting,
pushing forward
without hesitence.
They are one
on this ride -
driven, inoportune...
Look out!
the window
and see them there
side by side
in their beauty
for evil has
it's ways
and it's beauty...
in the cold, in the snow
to call you
from your comfortable life,
wake you up
from sleep
and with it's wiles
make you forget
why the fiery one
has arrived.
Stay away!
or come in -
I can already
hear the knock
at the door...
all the same,
all the time,
that delicious,
numbing cold -
and to stroke
the devil's shining steed -
standing impatient,frozen
there on the doorstep
is to feel
no earthly animal
but the barren bite
of another day
in the winter cold
without you...
Spontaneous poem inspired by a dream.

Thankyou! This is actually one of my favorites (despite the fact that the dream that inspired it was really frightening) I send a :hug: for reading my poetry!
