Written in Blue Mercury

snow falls

as silently as sleep

pressed snowflakes

icicle flowers

between the wind and windowpane

melt their way to sill

 

polished chrome darkness shivers

ankle deep in frost

night’s breath spills

along the  frozen glass

its silver shadow rolls

and condenses with the dawn

 

night’s epitaph

written in blue mercury

trickles down my windowpane

in the light of a new day

  1. Part what appeals to me most about poetry is word-density imagery. How vivid a picture can one paint in how few words. You do this very well in your work Jasmine.
