Gloveless

Gloveless

A Poem by Poppy Ruth Silver
"

No two snowflakes are the same...

"


A dark mood 
some may call it
they would be correct
yet blind to the depths
but you...
you see clearly
holding me tight
your strength
is the only light
I know
you are the sun
when I fear 
imminent snow
for it will cascade soon
pure and driven with purpose
as I fall into the brightness of it all
searching for footsteps no longer there
remembering snowmen built without a care
strange how the fingers still feel the cold
I haven't worn gloves since

sometimes we long to feel - anything. memories can be born anywhere and live in us no matter what triggers. so we hold tight and revisit at will - 'tis the beauty of going "gloveless" ...

This is amazingly imaginative! Love the way the intensity seems to build as one reads along & also the casual word play & scattered rhymes. Good use of contrasts, too. Your message is captivating! Fondly, Margie

Very nice work Poppy. Quite haunting in some ways. I very much like the way yours follow and the pictures they help me to make. Like Andrew, I've gone back about 3 times to the final line! I've decided not to trey and understand it but instead just enjoy the feel of it.

I hate auto correct!!! I like the way your [space] words flow ...
as is no two moments are the same Poppy. Interesting write, had to read several times because of the last line. I felt not wearing gloves was really resigning to the fact that this moment would not be repeated! I like this write!
