The Inuit say 

when the malikkaat unfold 

summer is coming


and you long to trust this


to know 

a place free of killing frost,

a flowered 


where the ground 


under your bones.


Watch as this bright face turns

toward the light,

even as the snow clouds steal

over the mountains.



it takes more than courage

to open.



it takes a willingness

to lose even the sun


before a new season 

can arrive.
