trapped by snow (for Lan)

these shards of mother-of-pearl falling
are my prompts for wooing you    each one
seems so like the others but is   in fact
so much different    together they make
a blizzard of unkempt love that packs
the heavens with shimmering pearls
the little flashes from the streetlamps
skirring through the snowy whiteness
are sparks from my soul    the fire of your hearth
dawn with its colors hiding    day with its surprises
dusk with its shadows    night with its love songs
all shall be our bed linen wrinkled with pleasure
warmed by our bodies in long embrace
thus we together will build the springtime
kiss by kiss   touch by touch   sigh by sigh
