Beneath the icy soil,
frozen in endless winter,
hard, like a shield,
something precious lies,

something unseen,
warm and fluid like love,
but frozen in time,
frozen in winter's fear,

at times seeping,
just enough
to know that all is not winter,
and so, you delve,

too often failing,
at times coming close,
perhaps someday,
to discover.

Hi Tom,

Happy exploring!

...and so you delve...

And so your craft is ever fine tuning itself...
I liked this, Tom.
