Hearts and Flowers for Valentine's Day

Hearts and Flowers

It is a frosty February morning.  Some where between Chinese New Year and Valentine's Day. 

And the moon grows fat and white on a diet of fresh snow.

And preparations are made for the day of illumination:  The Lantern Festival.




Frost Flowers

Frost flowers on windows panes on misty Monday mornings

The last gasp of winter.

She is a stranger here.

Both beautiful and terrible.

Standing on Razor Blades

Gliding across her icy face on steel blades

Stumbling now and then

Cut deep into the bloodless frozen pool

Twirling like a whirling snowflake

Dawn like a Flaming Sword

Riding through the electric blue predawn on a sleek train

through the cold and dark

Dawn comes like surprise

Rising, burning, revealing

Long, Slow Songs

Twilight in the time between suns.

Illuminated from above by ghostly, ethereal light.

Flash over damp pavement and swiftly running muddy creeks.

Fluttering flags in a good stiff breeze.

In the world between storms

In some secret way that only our driver knows.


Dawn comes to a faded sky.

Dark night bird soars over a dimly lit dwelling

Dark and tattered remnants of storems

shamble past the horizon.

A forest of street lamps mark a parking lot.

A city shrouded in mist.
