Winter Hibernation

I am carried back,

to the ground of my existence,

while snuggled inside this cocoon,

waiting in limbo for the renewal

of my soul to take flight.

—– —– —– —– —–

With two feet of snow,

accumulated over the past three days,

this hibernation reminds of quarantine,

when five weeks ago, my soul

shouldered the burden of solitude,

shaking me to the core.

—– —– —– —– —–

The sense of existential dread,

that I felt on the last evening,

before my release from captivity,

ensues, like a pivotal experience,

meant to rearrange my days,

into an exploration

of the primordial intuition,

that followed right before dawn,

garnered my attention,

and persists to reshape my identity,

serving as a compass,

pointing in a new direction.

  1. An intense poem, Tzvi, that moves like a soul in flight from being ‘snuggled inside this cocoon’ to two feet of accumulated snow, and makes the excellent comparison of hibernation to quarantine. I really feel the existential dread, as well as the glint of hope ‘pointing in a new direction’.

  2. This is incredibly deep and potent! I especially like; “like a pivotal experience, meant to rearrange my days, into an exploration of the primordial intuition.” Thank you so much for writing to the challenge 💙💙
