(Fire and Ice – painting by Michelle Meister )
I am an intense person
in a quiet way,
often you don’t notice
till you are in close contact,
and most people don’t get to that vicinity.
If you are dancing around the edge,
testing the temperature and atmosphere,
You will get a chill,
feeling alone and morbid.
You will only pierce me with fire and flames,
the same intensity of my ice sculpted palace.
If you are expecting mashmallows, vanilla sky, warm and fussy,
I am an intense person,
a Rinko waiting for Kūki to
ignite the Lost Paradise!
* A Lost Paradise is 1997 novel by Japanese author Junichi Watanabe.
