Marisol in Snow DSC_5779
The firewood waiting for the stove
the table waiting for a picnic
and the dinghy waiting for the sea
rest easy, don't you know, joined underneath the snow?
And so should you, my love.
Even now your inner life is aflame.
Even now the bread and wine are in your hands and on their way.
Even now the bow is lifting
toward a wave with your name written on it
in the clearest water.
