thick fog over snowmelt
there's an implacable wind rushing in through the trees. everything is blue in this light.

'You gave me hyacinths first a year ago;
They called me the hyacinth girl.'
Yet when we came back, late, from the hyacinth garden,
Your arms full, and your hair wet, I could not
Speak, and my eyes failed, I was neither
Living nor dead, and I knew nothing,
Looking into the heart of light, the silence.
– t.s. eliot, "the wasteland" (1922)
