Casting Out The Dust Of Winter: Anticipating Spring

by Terence George Craddock

I am casting out… the dust of winter…
winter cold… came creeping…
into shadows… falling shadows… an autumn house…
creeping into… cold blue winter…
biting winter… empty spaces…

I am casting out… the dust of winter…
in this expected… cold burst spell…
winter lingers lingering… coldest coldest… month in the year
two weeks eaten… a third two days…
weeks weeks slowly eaten… finally into the forth…

I am casting out… the dust of winter…
dust cold mist… came creeping…
into breath… cold spaces… time age creeping…
dust is a film… chill cold stealing…
in over silent winter… chill days dust sleeping…

I am casting out… the dust of winter…
days dark starting… walking to work…
in a station wagon… mail delivering… in an old worn out…
car mail delivering… winter roads mail boxes…
rural delivery… to blue mountain route driving…
