New Old Cold!

I stood there
Anaesthetized and
Frozen to the sidewalk,
Engulfed by the echo
Of a whistling windchill
That found my skin
Through layers
And overalls.
Cold and fear
Amalgamated with
Pinched memories
That spiked
Like shards
Of uneven glass
Splintering through
Follicles of gooseflesh.
I pictured his kind face
Like a hologram
That stood out
And blended
Within the crowd.
Prickled skin
Softened to faith,
And sensation
Kicked in
As I held that
Accustomed cup
Of sublime heat.
I quickly learned
To jumpstart
My world
To the present.
To the love that
Brought me back
To a country
Long left behind.
When suddenly
Those relentlessly
Nipping reflections
Of minus degree'd
Melted softly,
Like the season's
First snowflake
That assimilated
Into this
Untouched mug
Of caffeinated delight.

  1. This sounds exactly like me as I await the coffee pot to have my first cuppa coffee....lol
    Loved all of the imagery in this, so good, it's made me want a cup now. :)

  2. This is well weaved..nice poetry and imagination...


  3. Wonderful. Felt the biting cold and the warm relief. Great bit of poetry.

  4. I think that is how I feel about a cup of hot chocolate or a cup of hot tea. I am still trying to get into the coffee thing but I just do not seem to be doing too well at it. Although I must say that I am starting to like the smell of fresh coffee. And if I had enough chocolate to it then I seem to be able to drink it. I guess I just have to have some faith that maybe someday I will finally start to like it. Although at my age I do seem to be way past the age where I should have learned to like it by now. So if I make it to 100, I will have to have a cup to celebrate. LOL

    Thanks for patiently waiting for me to visit and I hope to be feeling better pretty soon.

    God bless.
