possibility in yes

the possibility in your "yes"
is a beam of sun
that played across the faded drapes
and caught floating specks of grime
and turned them into sparkling stardust
in otherwise dullest wintertime

the possibility in your "yes"
is a few water molecules
that met bittercold air
and wove crystalline fractals
across a bubbled pane
the moonlight through them looks
intensely lovely,
a living thing captured in trembling bare branches.

the possibility in your "yes"
is the lacy veil of six-point snowstars
diamonds dazzling white
gathered in my dark hair
as if arranged to shine.

I could never purchase these,
so fine are they, and rare
and I am grateful for the gift
it may last but a moment
but ah, the moment for which it is there.
