truth-screaming change of
the temperature of
the breeze in my hair

and realize
in this slipping
away of time
that I am now

headed for
an unknown
winter that

    Yes, oh and I bet she will sting (but with such a good, hard, cleansing sting - a needed bite). excellent Dim.hex, Tracey, loved this one, very emotional and visual. Love me.

    Hope not. Perhaps it will sparkle with things silver and new. Wishing you a wondrous and magical winter filled with love. : ) Yes, I do love this form that you have completely mastered and do miracles with. Thanks about the contest. Much love, Shar
