I went to capture the sunrise. Instead I looked at the essence of loneliness.

A Winter Morning's Breath of Life 


Blistering wind 

chills to the bone. 

Nose runs and longs 

for warmth. 

Hands wonder 

if this is what frostbite feels like. 

Feet desire 

thicker socks. 

Legs want two more 

layers of clothing. 

The only thing warm 

is my heart. 

It remembers 

the love we shared. 

Instead of hiding behind 

closed doors.
