Underneath the Snow

Lisa Cox

I went into the snow
Because my house was
Was too warm
And the walls were falling in

Lost in the snow white
Blinded by the light
I came upon a singular fact
That I had only one way to act

I plowed into the snow
Underneath it I must go
The light split my head open
Pain ran like stiches through my skull

I longed for the underworld of snow
Cold and dark where I could rest
Instead the earth began to bleed
Green leaves and tender grass

The ache in my head subsided
As I created a garden there
In the midst of all that snow
Far from the falling walls
