Spring Blizzard 2003, 8' 3" of Snow Before It Ended.


the way snow does
over Earth’s bones, trees
– -vast ocean
crystalline emotion.
Cornices curl
with the wind-blown night- –
stormy seas of unflawed white.
Love is like this drifting.
Wafting feathers- –
my love drifts
crystalline emotion
over you- -against you,
into the vast expanse
of your star bright heart- –
drifting- -drifting back,
returning love to me.

It’s all a gentle drifting- –
love and winter.

Shadow Play.

Walking alone
memories spun in a silk web
hang quietly in my mind- –
love changes life
– -rearranges perception

alert- -aware
peripheral movement- –
glistening shadow play
his dark eyes- -there- -ingrained
in subconscious suspension
– -dreaming- -awake,
aware and dreaming
love flutters my gut

my heart unconditional
warms in his light
knowing I’m not alone

Love Notes

a flat bottom boat
silent, but for your breathing
– -a slow rhythmic tune
playing love notes
in my heart
echoing gentle kisses
in the chamber
your eyes my looking-glass
for love

Pull Me

Cold comes in
riding on darkness,
gliding toward me
– -silent, but for the wind
from the dark wings
– -feathers whistling
beneath the eaves.

Pull me into you.
Hide me in your arms
safe within the blanket
of your love.  Loneliness
– -the shadow of silence
touches my soul
with bony fingers
– -laughs at my tears.
My fears bleed violet.
– -Violent red streaks
the coldness, except
in you. 

Pull me
from never-ending
cold- -hold me safe
from shadow’s reach.
Pull me into your love.
Hide me from the silence
– -I am.
