Snow is falling on the river
As I reach through this stone
To a portrait
Invisibly there
Even softer than melting
This silence
Older than gods
It is, as the stone is silent
But stones donít melt. . . . 
I turn away
Taking back the stone
Go ahead pressing wet leaves
To the pavement
Now one breath precedes my own
I catch up
It is yours  is with me
We lie silent as the snow
Falling on the river
