Snowflakes pressed in indigo,
for a coming new year.

I know you will read this.
I know you will not understand.

But, the sky is ready.

Snowflakes pressed in violet,
warming up
for a coming new year.

Haven't you gotten
your pound of flesh,
and then some?


                          violet                                                              blush-burst

indigo                                                                                                                      magenta

The sun
has arrived

but you don't see
the new year,
the melt,
the new day.

You're too blindly busy
thinking of
the next
crimson cut.

the sky is ready,

trade your warfare
for wings,
come fly with me.
