*Beauty of Winter

Lie still, lie still while the stiff bone-tiredness spends itself in sleep,
while the snow floats by, the solstice passes and new a space opens,
slippy sugar frosting
over a muffled, breathy hole in time.
Drop down, drop down and dream towards the coming year.

  1. Yes, thanks for the inspiration this year, Lilian and this one from Jean is lovely. I like that last line: “Drop down, drop down and dream towards the coming year.” I need to cultivate that dream space, especially now.
