The Challenge


The grip of Winter, in its hold
whispers of longing, to weather the cold.

Glistening flakes kissing softly the cheek
still warm the embrace, of words yet to speak.

A new year, a new journey to once again raise
new thoughts of what "ifs" to fill Winter days.

Balancing all, the old with the new
may not be enough for "the again" wish of you...

Satin touches, held dear, remembering each thrill,
"As Always" a promise, needing only the will.

Beautiful verse to go with the feelings you evoke.  
Your poetry is classic and stirs so many emotions.

Happy New Year, Maur~

Just  got in from shoveling again...not so bad though this time   didn't even need to use my new snowthrower!
I hope you are doing well, Lor, I think of you (and your dughter)often. Hugs and hope you have a healthy and happy year ahead.


Hi there, Linda. Thanks for the visit and congrats on your book. Wishing you also a healthy and happy New Year.

I know, the "will" is always the problem.   Thank you, Emily, for the read~~

Wonderful...I don't break promises to others but have so often broken those to myself...this line from you fits so perfectly.

"...."As Always" a promise, needing only the will."  

as always...enjoyed

Ida, this was one of those years that needed a kiss or two goodbyes   thank you and I hope the New Year treats you well.


Bruce, Happy New Year~~ let me know how it's going.

jwesley, hmmm me, too, breaking my own promises to myself.  My line meant also the will of another.

Thank you,  happy new year!
