Illo Friday: Cold

Without Stopping

into her stillness
she came - silent
as she listened
to her shadows stalking her every step

and it came
from beyond the void
appearing in front of her
gradually foggin her clear concept

and again
she shut her eyes
only to see it unobscured
and it ram her heartbeat in two

and she ache
with every sun shining
with every empty morning
blank eyesights of chilled reflection

but she danced
with the wind's hurl
thinking that this flight
will be the transition
chasing the breath out of her

so in coldness
astonished by the fume
a wide gazing length
the faint light freeze-dried her

   and she came crawling
   as the shadows
   reappear again

But even in its softness
can she swiftly glide away?
with no looking back
  unheard of,

note: A very late entry for last week's

This is very eerie and chilly ... all those remote eyes. I can feel her breath being chased down, down to where the shadows should sleep ...

This is really creepy and disturbing in a spiritual kind of way - a bit like the dry riverbed that is the afterworld in Ursula Le Guin's Earthsea books. Excellent use of colour and texture - those eyes take a while to emerge!

Eerie and fascinating. Nice, I liked it very much. It's the eyes and the ambience of the entire piece.
