Solo, she is only ice,

Charlatan in paradise;

When she lets the Light shine in,

Then her glory can begin.



apricot daylily

Her heart of hearts records the pain,

Places where deep scars remain;

Damaged tissues bear the strain,

Warped and twisted soul.

Kissed by Light, and coaxed by rain,

Wounded places bloom again,

Every scar croons fresh refrain –

Wrinkles make her whole.

The Melting

sunset ice

You came to me like a song,

Hushed, on the wings of a warm wind;

The glare hurt my eyes

And I looked away,

Afraid to breathe,

Afraid to speak,

Lest your beauty break the ice

That masqueraded as my backbone.

But Love, determined Spring,





Yellow Diamond Lily

Glowstick gleam in deepest dark, incandescence blooming bright;

Tube and charge which cause the spark must be bent to make it light.

So your splendour glimmers best when life’s pressures twist your frame;

Bow with poise to each new test – darkness craves a brilliant flame.
