#LoveMadeVisible Day 27: Witness, by Lynn Schuessler



Brave the sharp whiteness
Muffle the cold by folding
your warmth within it

Without a sound

Scuff the crystal carpet
Soften the biting air with
puffs of white-hot breath

Then feel the thrum
of your blood
as you trace

the tracks of those who came before
the sky-branch-scape of white upon black
the just-by-chance bright and falling star

as they melt
their once and forever paths
across your heart.
