Start a fire then read

The smoke



The future overhead

Trails moving


With hope

And happiness


As told in the levels

Of warmth and riesling,

Sipping  anticipation

And grief


One thought on “Freezing at the Lake

  1. Gwen ~

    This was so profound for me.

    Sometimes we have to relight the fires under ourselves to get our lives going again.

    “The sipping anticipation and grief” ~ I loved it! I know most of us have had to sip more than that in this lifetime: fear, love, embarrassment, humility.

    This piece really moved me!
