Radiance of Your ketheric kiss
is all I have left...
sleepless I pace through
the long snowbound polar night
listen to the wolf's forlorn howl
and a woman weeping in the
this abominable separation!
tracking Your crystal footprints
with my heart
can you not hear the Soul's lament
sighing over remote, frostbitten blue
trails that lead nowhere if You are
Companion of Heaven!
when will You visit my tent again?
