your remnant shred of cleaved sentience, its integral winnowing downforce; whorling from pioneer skittish flakes to full-sketch sophomore, from freeze-dried petrichor to bombrush, snowfield fuzz eddying in fleeting, fitful plenitudes ‘midst our want for more - your intercession; awed exfoliant of tepid vacuities - your tufting micro-ministrations mush sombre vastnesses; your crystalline emboss/deboss of serene, splayed splenetics, your fluffy flux of fractious loads that witter down the last winsome aspects of icicle throtted flora - we await our snow-capped causeway’s re-emergence, we approximate the wherefores of the tufted tracks we trekked the day before within these subsumption frontiers of distal, mulched horizons you’ve presently so presciently blurred; you, slawing radiant as a brilliance of moonbeam, as distill, as a manifest granularity smunched, in desiccate compact of frenzied flurries seemingly cemental and yet, so soon, so sunlit, flailing, expiring, revealing that now’s all is muchly more than the fallow-followed, drear furore of bored, workaday before - renewed point and purpose to that watchful, lapping shore, your selfless blanch to meltwater and our hallowed eyesmeet; its ice-break whip-crack of quench and thaw and that’s when, dear friend, we’ll go rafting again, our buoyant brusque laughter in spindrift skim on those much missed lakes of deep azure.
