“I dreamed of a garden, a hot house garden, steaming under glass mottled with green.
Vibrant and tropical in the midst of winter, it was riotous with growth, great palms, twisted ancient vines
and mysterious flowers giving off a heady rock of passion and poison.
There was a fantastical array of insects,glittering, slithering snakes wrapped in branches,
their scales shimmering deep teal green and violet in the cold winter twillight.
Many birds, their plumage bright aqua ,iridescent green and purple flew about,
gorging on the flower laden vines, and the incandescent orangeand purple pulp of bloody oranges
oozing liquor in the trees and rotting heaps on the verdant floor.
At the pulsating heart of the winter garden was a precious magical flower that bloomed
only at midnight, it is dark wine turned a cold blue black by the twinkling northern stars.”
