"Discovering A Candle for Silver St. Cloud"
By the continued smell of the candles, clove and cinnamon, I embrace my true nature.
My urge to make things as art to give freely away has served to take me this far down
roads that are my essence. Now, realizing even collected works and volumes are lost

praying for mercy, the top of the erected spine busies itself with all manner of

Quietly now, a sense, design, all beyond those we know;
To her lips, bring stillness, love
While mother, living, waits for snow.
