Title: Ice Maiden

Ice Maiden

I can only whisper to you through vaults of time

hoping my pleas will reach out with their urgency.

I was young when vision spiraled from my mind

and swept me into halls of lavender darkness.

Lying furled in bear-skins, silver fox,

oiled and scented, fetal in carved larch,

my hair braided with fragile grasses – I looked beautiful;

safe in the sacred ice of my forever.

But now, pooled in insecurity, I lie exposed.

The erudite peer, probe with shaming curiosity.

Return me to the mellow depths of eternity,

beneath Northern lights and ffiords,

in everlasting peace.

.It is my right
