A Mink-warm Distance between Decades

“Winter Homestead” by D.H. Penner






winter is a mink-warm distance
     between decades…

quantum snowflakes
     of space and time zones…

…flutter on a breeze… of random thoughts…

there is your candle-lit laughter
stitching the gashes in my heart…

and your brandy-colored eyes
balancing the axis
of planets whirling through my soul…

as ice storms scream death
at the rest of the world,

to me they whisper lovingly
seasons of songs of you and I
burning our way toward spring…
