Prayer on the Runway

I take snowflakes magnified by grace. I put them in the jars.

Stellar dendrites, crystal partitions, specks of sparks. They

swirl in myriad wakes. White anarchy of feathers. Species of

sacred flurries. Miniature albatrosses in disguise. The snow

glistens, it is my flashlight. I cut through crowds of foreign

solitudes. I glide through space and slopes. Meandering

white brides. The frills and flounces of woods. A flock of

Dominican monks on skis. Dervishes unveiling. Snow

clasps its hands in prayer. Splashing litanies of lifts and

turns. The ceremonies of

kristianias

. Plowing the fields of

snow. Pollinating snow-lilies into powder.

White ptarmigans flutter their chants of feathers. Lift off. In

what image.
