Star Swords


Gathering in the sky
are low, heavy mists:
snow clouds shaped
by Zeus and Thor.
Wind snaps trees and
snow thunder bellows.
Colossal warfare done.
Angels weep in white lace.
Heroes unsung, undone.
Tears fall like feathers
from mute swans.

Each frozen flake,
cradled by roofs,
melts by radiated
human heat and sun,
drip by icy drip,
descending glacial tresses,
creating star-swords,
sparkling in the sun.
Break one, hold one.
Frozen fingers,
colossal fun.
