What do you see photo prompt:
Fog and mist shroud the warmth within your soul
chilled with icy retorts and rejection
Darkness cloaks your fragile heart
filled with shadowed thoughts and faults
Trees grow tall with tales,
Rooted in memory
All these, protect
Only those that truly desire you, find you
Those that search beyond all aspersions
Traversing that treacherous path
To find your place of solace
And share in your solitude
Where your purity dwells
and warmth persists
Coincidentally, I found this image a few weeks back and wrote a lovely sonnet for it. In case you missed it, check it out here
Sometimes we erect obstacles, maybe to prevent people from misusing the warmth of our hearts…
Sometimes it’s so that only those who truly want us and persist can be let in, and other times, it’s for other reasons.
I welcome your thoughts on this and I hope you enjoyed the poetry.
Stay safe, stay warm.
