because while some truths lend themselves to equations, others are best described in verse

When it sets in

even sunshine can be bitter, cold
as we stretch and smile,
bundled in boots and memories, strung
out like Christmas lights in February
swaying in a fragile air.
There is a quiet intensity
to every breath blown;
hunkered in our heartbeats, we
sip only warm things, tasting
the pulse of a new year.

  1. This is so good -so warm and I loved this “…memories, strung
    out like Christmas lights in February.”

    A better image I can’t imagine, Mosk

  3. Loved this. Immediately pulled into to the
    feeling of how ” even sunshine can feel bitter and cold ” as we bundle with boots and memories. It’s uplifting and gives hope as we warm up “sharing memories while hunkered with our heartbeats..”
