Ice flows over river water
Unburdened from mossy overtures from stained-glass
Fluent like sculptures and we embrace yet there’s
warmth in shallows
Through the canopies of melting snow and
years unwriting
Tell themselves seeds and leaves sky throw down
And we exist in the stained glass measures
Each phrase holding out circling spiraling
Our rejoinder like sculptures we embrace
Yet there’s warmth in the shallows
Now days are lengthening
Canopies of melting snow
The years are unwavering
Memory occurs only to me as a bud
Not yet shaken into blossom but fragrant still
Like sculptures we embrace yet there’s warmth found
in the shallows tribute
We are sutured together out of lyric mystery
Tiny bud thorn will soon accompany
Tender petal winter thaw never lasts long
What river shallow ends in shore’s length
The horizon fades to silver
Listen jewel toned voice
Fasten your lullaby to me
I hear the honeyed silk in your voice
Sun frames us in silhouettes and
Something splintered, hallowed, echoed
Here lyrics melting to thin flame of
Returning us to statues
