past in the present...

did you know
that when you look
at the stars you are looking
upon the past?

cozy
          winter
                      solstice

bundled -- as bare toes
slide into the great mother
earth -- a place where
an interwoven blanket
made from sand, stone
and twigs -- wraps
around an unaware
soul -- ensconced
in the very best
of what it means
to be human

a chocolate
flask with 
a lacquer glaze
ensures it doesn't
melt -- which means
not a single drop
of amber hued
cognac
will be
wasted

on those
extremely frosty
dark nights
