Ice Pure and Elemental


Ice Pure and Elemental

A curtain has been drawn apart

The winds, are softly dying

Yet there are petals floating

And leaves, falling down

Tumbling, red into white

In time, the twilight purples

And the candle, burns short

It is then, that I feel it most

The wind brings back

The sweetest scene

I replay it in my mind

The touch that is

Both ache and pain

And the longing that flows

Down the river of time

With heat enough

To set the seven seas aflame

The waves sound out a melody

That sings with passion and fire

It plays once again

On the chords of my heart

And the red sky

Like the pure wine of love

Opens up

To delight in this world

Of perfume and light

Flowers bloom everywhere

And bliss descends upon the night

Our desire still has far to go

Down passion’s blazing path

A white heat

That seems at once

Both ice pure

And elemental
