With shimmering deadliness,
Flexible and adaptable, give way,
Fray into a panorama of mosaic lines,
Or stand on one’s own accord.
Do not hide: refract and reflect,
Intensify that which one magnifies,
Be ice, be strong in fragility,
be pierced and reformed.
Susceptible to the seasons,
thaw, reform, and crystallize,
Be clear, clarifying.
Allow yourself to be at the mercy of natural cycles,
Grow something bright in a season of death.
Speak only in the drip
of the sun. △
