A warm Heart


Childhood summers days are the longest
They open up possibilities for endless play.
Those sunshine wrapped days made for fun
Have kept my heart warm over the years.
Now the days of possibilities are gone
And wailing winter wind whips me out of shape
Propelling me towards the dark days -
Those inevitable sunshineless days where
Reality seeps into your bones like chill
Seeping through cracks in a window sill.
I look ahead and warm my bones with 
Pictures of family and friends now gone
but etched forever deep in my heart where
the flaming fire of love is still aglow.

    I agree with Owen, Sherese. There are some great sentiments here. Memories don't leave like people do, but it is best when those memories are sweet ones. Thanks for your comments. On love and God bless. Joy Wells

    I'm glad I stopped to see your sonnet. It's a bit sad, but I am glad you can still feel the flame of love for family. It's very sad when our "summer" has fled!!!
