(Fire and Ice artwork by Rayanda)


winter is a mink-warm distance
     between decades...

 

quantum snowflakes
     of space and time zones...

...flutter on a breeze... of random thoughts...

 

there is your candle-lit laughter
stitching the gashes in my heart...

 

and your brandy-colored eyes
balancing the axis
of planets whirling through my soul...

 

as ice storms scream death
at the rest of the world,

to me they whisper lovingly…
seasons of songs of you and I
burning our way toward spring...

This is HUGE, I can feel the love swelling in each word and could do nothing but breathe a gentle sigh. What a lucky lady to be so loved that even in the depths of winter, thoughts of her warm your soul. I am misty after reading this, it is so moving.
Take care,
Sherry
Reviewed by Kate Burnside 2/14/2010
Warm as a Baileys and espresso mixed, this co-mingling, seasonal pyrotechnics of ice and fire burns with white-heat love and age-old desire. This is a delightful crevasse of the time-space continuum to be happily curled up and grow old in, swaddled as a newborn in furs of enduring passion. On both a human and metaphysical level, this makes me think of a soulmate confluence of energies. A blizzard to be caught up in, that's for sure. So good to read you again, dear AberJ! A beautiful cosmology for Sweet Heart Day! :)) xx

at the rest of the world,

burning our way toward spring...

To me, this is thoroughly lovely; truly fine poetry, Aberjhani. Thank you for sharing your gift. Love and peace to you,

Regis
