draw some warmth from this
brightest part of

    You paint the picture with amazing vividness Andrea. This is one form I am yet to try. Loved your poem as usual. Answered your comment at my page of Hello Kitty.

    this is so creative! i love the language you've chosen - the "snow-topped structures" and 'wintry woods' are my favs - and the shape adds so much interest to the poem. nice!
