For POETICS ~ dVerse ~ Winds of March ~ An Icy Embrace


the moment we stepped 
outside the glass door
Lo we met , face to face

an icy embrace

sending shivers deep inside
coat collar rolled up,tight
pushed back against the tide

an icy embrace

we kept walking slowly
unseen force engulfed
pulled controlled coldly

an icy embrace

someone cried 'O Jesus'
and I knew how cold he
felt, as he bowed and knelt

to the icy embrace

O Aeolus thou wast kind
but Sleep conquered mind
Greed left All Good behind

an icy embrace

man must know this
is the best unseen gift
Nature's Power to uplift

Life in an icy embrace


cold or warm it is good
wind it is as understood
fly sail breathe,no falsehood

though

an icy embrace

  1. This really chills me. An 'icy embrace' does not feel pleasant at all. Some really descriptive writing here.

  2. The refraining line of the icy embrace gave me the chills but such is the reality of life ~ We embrace the good and the bad as the wind ~ Thanks for joining ing ~

  7. Dear Friends Thank you so much - this poem reflects real life experience of winter in the UK 2003 The prompt stirred up the memories and March has its variety of moods.

  8. I like the repeated refrain -- though I'm happy we don't have that icy embrace happening where I live. Peace, Linda

  9. oh I love this... an icy embrace isn't always pleasant, but sometimes it is needed, so we continue to appreciate warmth.

  10. The repetition of the line, icy embrace...adds so much to this already descriptive poem. And it is true - in the wind there are no falsehoods! Hayes Spencer is Kanzensakura
