Hidden Beneath The Snow

Language of Crystal Formations

You will never find it
if you try,
but know that if you walked out
to look around for a while
it would be happy.

This is language written in crystal
formations, icy lines, cold logic,
and when it catches light
its stanzas change:
it moves into an ode,
or gathers a new voice for a moment:
something that should not be said–
even here, with all this quiet
light–

Come over here:
it likes to see and feel
your warm breath,
but not too close,

not now, you might change it
into something else, something
darker, with another tone:

the poem you must find alone.

    I like the metaphors and this-
    “but not too close,
    …you might change it
    into something else, something
    darker, with another tone-

    Oh, my comment about uploading pic’s..I don’t do that unless I’ve posted directly on a blog using it to link as I have plenty of my own? Gosh, hope that makes sense??

    Hello and thank you!

    I want to let you know that we are going live with the online radio program today at 3:oo pm eastern. It would be fun to have to on the show! The phone # is part of the BlogTalkRadio link on the upper right of this site.
