Crisp and Crazy

After months of chaos,
weeks of torture,
days as long as years,
years as short as minutes,
it has come.
The season of sanity,
the air cool as a cucumber,
not the dragon’s breath
we melted in all day long.
I can feel the change coming,
the calm before the storm.
I hope this time lasts
a good long while
because I hate being stuck
in time like I’ve been
for the past six millennia.
I can stand life now,
with the ability to enjoy
moments like this.
It will keep me level
for a while, I hope.
I must take advantage of this
before the lakes freeze over,
the ground becomes grey
and dead,
before everything dies
with my soul.
