Words under Pressure #10

One for all you up there in winterland….


Cold breathes out from your coat
When you come in from the night.
Your red cheeks have been warmed
At the cold fire of the stars.

The diamond light of those stars
Still glitters in your eyes,
Brighter than the fire’s flames
I see reflected there

But cooler and lonelier by far.
And the night has filled your head.
You have lost your heart
To the unconquered universe.

    perfect. I wish I could send you a picture of “my” stars, and my fire, to go with! Thank you!

      If you had a picture that fit the poem, and could email it, I’d be honoured to post it with the photo! We get some fairly sensational stars down here in the southern hemisphere tropics, but my camera’s not good enough to capture them. Glad you enjoyed it.
