daughter of winter
born during the blizzard of 69
she climbed empty trees
as a child
played with the ice voices

smoked the pipe of piece
at treaty rock
with a cowboy fan
drank Jack 'til dawn
made love in his cherokee

she carried his seed,
great warrior he was,
quarterback
at the university
where she worked tables pregnant

while he studied law
she gave him her youth
and three sons
with midnight eyes
and raven hair

he gave the kids back
in a divorce last year
and payments
on a worn out jeep
and empty house

she smokes and drinks now
makes wolf woman love
with pale skinned strangers
ghosts of the long knives
that took her land

she rents them her valleys by the hour...

Yes this is very sad.  We see people and we wonder....what's behind the eyes....

(tears fall down my cheeks) Oh OMG, this is so very sad and my heart cries out to this poor heartbroken girl in despair. (wipes tears) I feel this pain will always be afflicted to her, and I pray with all my heart that true love can reach out to her and heal her pain somehow! (sad sigh) So very sad, sweet friend, my heart and prayers are always with this girl! God Bless her and you always! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet OMG, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,

Born in 69?  She has lived a long lifetime in these few years.  So sad.  Joyce

Sea, thank you for your review....and for your reflection.

Ms Rose, her eyes are cold her jaw is set bitter firm...when she told her story I felt the icy winds from the cascades cut through my skin.  Thank you for your read and comments.

NC Girl, thank you for the time and gentle thoughts of reply.


JanMarie, thank you, I appreciate you.

Friend Noah, your gentle spirit is a blessing to all who wear sad clothing.

Joyce..she is so young and yet so worn out....thank you.

Catmoon, I feel her sorrow in the winter winds..like a siren song of sadness....thank you so much for the read

Heartbreakingly real. My heart goes out to her. It sounds like hope no longer shines in her eyes or heart. **hugs**

Love I leave with you whether it is in your life now or yet the essense of your dreams.
