night frost heaven

[From November, 2014…]

night has its rewards for those who seek them

and this I will do
exulting tacitly in its beauty

the heavens reveal themselves
in frosty splendor

and the breath exhaled carries today’s griefs
and yesterday’s sorrows up
up up
as sacrificial smoke

clarity in the night

warmth amidst the frost

and all the stars

one could want


for company
