A Walk in Winter by Maria Kelly

Snow covers the footpath
where pebbles and small wildflowers
once flourished in abundance
and graced us with their loveliness.

The trees with branches bare, like bones,
where icicles hanging thickly
are dripping in what little warmth
the stingy sun begrudgingly bestows.

We walk together - without gloves,
holding frozen hands,
chapped lips expelling frosty mists,
and we don't even notice the cold.

Maria,

Once again, you amaze me with your words!

Have you thought about becoming a regular contributor to Soft Whispers? If not, you should! :)
