the word and the need of the now is refresh.
the newly painted walls with the undertone of peach.
the 10 valentine-red gerbera daisies in a cream-crackle vase.
card number 19 plucked from the deck of the tarot~ the sun.
above all in the now, the wonderland that is winter.
the crisp air,
the dazzle and awe of faery-weight snow
clinging to branch and stem
in a collective visual poem
that stirs up buried joy
not felt for years.
not number 19,
but the sustainer of life.
shimmering on faery-weight snow
and walls and red petals.
calling me up from the deep
with its breath of fresh light.
