The old man holds the lantern

against the dark.

The light like a tiny sun

reflecting on snow glistening.

Walking slowly

through the castles and

caverns of his mind

the sound of ice crystals

cracking, shifting

bowing under his weight.

His breath like fog rising off a still pond

in the deepest, blackest night.

But still the light

always the light following

til he comes to the cave

there a thousand eyes staring,

a thousand mouths waiting,

all of his memories,

all of his wisdom,

all of his secrets.

Chelsea Rose Ross lives in Salt Lake…
