Can we borrow the eyes of winter and spring to detect — behind the slippery, crystal-glassy, prayer-like quiet and focus of a sentinel, a snowman half-disfigured when scrutinized by early February winds — sparkles from an unseen, unbeatable citadel? Perhaps to glimpse them is to design and shape a dream. Perhaps it involves peeling the skins of our brains, prying into their microscopic flesh, veins and tissues, breathing the energy-whirling hearts of neurons where micro-strands of juices and memories sleep and speak. Maybe that citadel is one of the pinnacle building blocks of His marble statue in heaven. This time, ghostlier, saintlier. The marble is not marble. The statue is not statue. It can metamorphose, leap, time-travel, prophesy, myriad ways, at His disposal.
(Footnote: The ‘citadel’ may refer to the Element of Imagination or the Element of Poetic Creativeness in the cosmos or in the world of poetry.)
