Embraced

crystalline fingers 

interlace

across the surface, 

of liquid water

in the goldilock zone.

below the plumb line

indolent turtles stir, 

their hearts frosted 

by winter’s sleep.

the sudden 

gust 

that exhales flakes of lace 

whispers 

as your voice in love,

cracking 

the restricting

ice

to break the sound barrier.

yearning

through the starving times,

life 

stretches and yawns.

and i can see in the dark.
