TO DREAM OF SKATING ON ICE “To dream of skating on ice means satisfaction with a current project.” --Dictionary of DreamsAmidst white grovesInside a lilac tree I gaze at airy flights across a frozen lake.Like soaring birdsWe are all of us, skating on ice.Spanning circuits Dense, ring-shaped, Effortless, Dazzling as a diamond dreamBefore the break.Beneath the brightness, I see a shadowAnd the semblance watches me.A shrill remembrance,The impervious stare of quartz: A trade-off between tomorrow and the past.The break below faces a ruptured skyline. Its path Squalls out for meaning. The meaning is the sea.I seize the mirror and the likeness mirrors me.Beneath the brightness, a shadow floatsUnder a pond of ice.Freezing up in time and spaceI drift inside the memory of a winter’s whorl,Heading back to where I came from,Struggling for one more breath of waterUntil the last.
