how wilted am I 

in rays of sun too young to

melt the morning frost

melt the morning frost

etched like crystal spider webs

on patient windows

on patient windows 

shadows want much more drama

remain transparent

open the windows

let winter wind purify 

air of adventure 

 

 

 

(I love garlic. I'm not saying that just to make my claim I'm not a vampire slightly more convincing. I really love garlic.)

that test us, when we sigh and

fossils in the stone 

funny, how they still move, their 

journey continues 

 

 

(I was once looking for a sign. And we also went for a short hike, to the top of our mountain. We sat down to have sandwiches and enjoy the view and... a small rock was poking my behind. So I reached for that rock and realized I'm looking at a fossil. Relatively common, nothing important for the science. But it was so hilarious... I got my sign, a fossil of prehistoric marine animal, taken to the top of the mountain, year by year, inch by inch. And it was my butt that found it.)

wise hear what they say

though the language is so soft

it mimics the wind

in search of safe nest

the swan takes his time and glides

near the bobbing edge

Old crone in firelight 

Stirring in the eye of newt
