absorbed by fire and ice

      pane of glass as frost climbs over the sill

  crystal web punctured by daybreak

                the fractured eye evaporates its peaks and valleys

 ----a clear vision -----

a rod of heat, spiking the chest, piercing the sternum


someone enters


    a horse spirit with her unbridled grace

splashes color about the room

                            a mane wetted by rainbows


something enters


a drop of water on the silent pool

a child without glasses riding paint
