With shimmering deadliness,Delicate sharpness, Paradoxical strength,

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, All seeing.

Be ice, be strong in fragility, be pierced and reformed.

Resilient, frozen, 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.

Silent, Speak only in the drip of the sun. △
