leaving everything stripped bare

Thanks to  raysharp.wordpress.com/2012/11/12/snow-poet-trees/

we stood in the snow
coated
pure and simple
white
and I thought

your eyes
said, “love”, even
as I watched the way
your poetic lips
wrapped

around other words
that my ears
turned away

I stood in the snow
still
as the naked oak trees
shivering
in the cold bitter wind.

    I don’t know how to do these pingbacks and such, but the snow has just begun

    five months since we kissed

    and all the flashing fire flies

    have turned to snow flakes

    a dusting of snow
    sifts over the charred remains
    of a fire that blazed

    Just have to read this over and over again to ponder its many facets, a wonderful ice crystal reflecting many rays.
