At Rest

You reached and tears burned your chilled cheeks
and like the sleet on windows streak
until they fall from chin to breast
will burn again like fire's lick;
like pain of rose's thorns that prick
the flame of love's eternal quest.
Where does the fire end at last
and at its best left unsurpassed ?
Exhausted souls lie calm - at rest.

    Hi Craig, a belated congratulations/apology for not reading your wonderfully written poem before I had to go off on a trip. I have read it now and certainly see how it placed on the winner's list. I'm back in town and will return to my specific comments relating to your winning poems for future contest. Again, sorry I couldn't respond sooner. But what a great work you have accomplished!

    Dear Craig, You know, I actually do feel pain physically when I cry. I hope that when we find eternal rest, the pain ends and we are at peace. Enjoyed your poem and wish you well in the contest. (I made the change in my poem. Thanks for the notice. I hadn't been on the computer since last night.) Love, Carolyn
