small stones – January 19, 2016

weeks ago I moved
the most fragile
into the center room
the ones that would freeze
wilt and die below 40 degrees

today I moved the hardiest
as temperatures dipped
way below freezing

if only I could bundle
them all in blankets
my jungle would not be gone
and emptiness
would not surround me
