The cardinal bids the day adieu;
the winter storm has left a gelid...
gelid, nature, winter,
This February will not usher spring,
wisteria like grapes hung on their roods;
more pewter shadows does the season bring.
Now I've misplaced all the beatitudes
to lambent grasses...
When life encounters opaque space
gelid, angst, endurance, feelings,
When gusty winds blow, riling my troubled dawn in gelid woes
Squall of my throes dissipates in scented whiffs of budding rose.

My name in bane beauty
Ingesting upon this void of fear
Study in White

Blankets of chenille-covered snow

Gelid surfaces of lakes and streams
Cross Over to Tomorrow

Our souls bonding our love,
Renewing our marriage vows,

Still hallowed is the well, and so they pray,

LET FRIGID WINTER COME
