Hot air

breath on ice

melting

melting

this is how it goes

vague white fading

to colour and

the world righted

in a handful

of cracks

 

and this really is

how

it

goes

when breathing

hot air onto ice.

 

we will find time, of

course, before the melt

to write

about the beauty

of Chione’s touch – oh

such divinity in nature –

and exalt perception’s

glistening, how it

invites us anew

to capture, contain,

describe, admire,

explain…

bring meaning

share…

we will share

oh god will we share – out there,

beyond our sphere, reaching into places which

should be out of reach but are not

– and in this sharing,

this caring if you like,

(you like? yes, you like)

others will

see

just

how

special

we are.

 

but we will still

blow hot air on ice –

we will write our world
