past in the present…

did you know
that when you look
at the stars you are looking
upon the past?

cozy
          winter
                      solstice

bundled — as bare toes
slide into the great mother
earth — a place where
an interwoven blanket
made from sand, stone
and twigs — wraps
around an unaware
soul — ensconced
in the very best
of what it means
to be human

a chocolate
flask with 
a lacquer glaze
ensures it doesn\’t
melt — which means
not a single drop
of amber hued
cognac
will be
wasted

on those
extremely frosty

dark nights
