To Live in Such a Way

Of this window, two things, knowing they are one:
your breath on icy glass, bright spirits as they pass.

To Live in Such a Way

To live in such a way as not to break this sweet silence.

Cherub on a limb. Fluffy wren.

Snowflake. Winterwake.

If you ask her where she’s been, she will sing again.

Make that your name, if you must have one.

If you must have anything, have love.

The innocence of sense divine.

The sacred sense of innocence.

The incense of your time.

Up into the heavens. See us rise.
