snowflakes in February

it’s love like a rose

red, bleeding, into your soul

a river drowns any wave

curling its mighty sea:

love deepens the night bones darkly

in its reach, tenderly yearning your touch,

the celestial snowflakes fall

behind the dry pine needles

and open the kiss of morning.
