‘in winters dark, the world dreams of delightful fangs’

_the wild embrace between two seasons_

and here, we are, you and I, walking down the autumn colored

city streets.

Pavement

all wet and newly showered

in pearl

white snow

that fell

from cloudy stars

like a stream

of endless leaves,

hence

once more

draped

this world finds

itself

in white and cold

mixed with this

seasons

auburn colored

warmth

and sultry clothes

revealing

it is

our city, and it now

rise

twofold

with its trees,

peculiar

a man-made

concrete life,

of glass and steel

and nature’s own

sky high life,

true wealth

of

colors, organic breath and wildest

critters.

Eagles

that now live

atop

the golden gate and mountain

like

buildings,

of glass that breathes

shimmer, shine

ére we walked

down these, shores

like happenstance

you are

the dryad

slow you rise

from out of summers warmth,

your high heeled shoes

light

you held, in hand

with toes all bare, to kiss and pet

the naked land

and sun-kissed harbor

Now here we are,

once again

in snow and crowing birds,

walking down

another street

shoes on feets

hand in hand, we kiss

its color

the autumn warmth

of trees and cities

which oft too touch,

and slow

make out

with winter’s dark
