Snowflake Heartbeat - Poem by Cristea Adina

You stir me up and I can’t hide
against the tempest rising
slowly - with each exhaling of the tide,
As the encircling air
drapes scent of fresh wet brine,

enwrapping this smothering hotness
of petrified summer days;


White curling lace in deep whorl’s spin
crashes upon the seashore
in sprinkles, gliding down my skin –
the fallen robe of seagulls,
wings vaporous and free

Fresh veil entwining down my feet,
entangling foam
of quenchened sighs
breathes in and out upon the wakened
scratches of burnt sand lines,

while lumps dissolve
in filmy substance,
shifting along the floating tide.


Wash, wash away the shore in pristine whispers,
smooth new born ground under your veil,
beneath the abiding vastness
of the dark blue sky,
As falling drops turn into snowflakes
floating gainst gravity of time


Full cling your heartbeats to the rhythm
of the dawning seconds
winding down sand’s spine,

tremorous fingers grasping for
shimmering pearls of moonlit water,
sparkling above this rising
swirl of abyssial blue
cloaked by your chalky skin.


Heart - floating, timeless and anew
Unchained, yet clinged to your warm breathing
against the salty air,
For this one swirling moment
stifled in between
the numbness of the daylight
and turmoil of the gloom
