Nature, with her frozen glance,
Proves to us that she’s immortal.
Time chokes minutes with its hands
Slowly squeezing the aorta.

Naked trees in passion sway,
Sweeping stars, while none will fall.
Icy puddles mark my way--
Dark like windows of one’s soul.

Freezing doves sit on a cable
Staring at the pale sky.
Wind-- the hand that rocks the cradle,
Softly sings a lullaby.

Thus I linger, sad and dreary,
Breathing in the silent night.
Shaking lips still prove my theory,
It’s so cold-- dreams freeze in flight.

i love the descriptive metaphors... great job...

Phew! You've done it again, Master.....(that is, taken my breath away)  Another beautiful is that you can prolifically write such wonderful work? :.) (I'm duly jealous... lol) Keep writing, my walls have lots of space.... ;.)

I agree with Kevin, your work is definitely underappreciated.  This is superb work.  I absolutely love "t’s so cold-- dreams freeze in flight." and the whole feel and flow of the poem in general.  It hit me hard.  Beautiful job, I'm truly impressed.

I thank all of you for your kind comments.

Kevin, I enjoy your work just as much.

peanogrl83, I'll see what I can do to cover those walls! LOL

Thank you Stephanie, glad you liked it.

Alwye, as long as you and Kevin keep reading, I'm happy! I don't want to be popular, I just want to be loved. *S* Thanks for responding!
