Poet's Notes About The Poem
(Show Details...)

The pain as the ice cube is held, fiercely gets worse, actual tears to the eyes,relief is slow as the cube melts, all feeling are numbed...........
Looking at the pictures can see the coldness in the eyes, the fierce no holds barred look. Impervious to feelings of others.  Would be good as a torture, don't think it would take more than 2 cubes to loosen the tongue, unless the hands are rough and worn.

    This might be a good opportunity to create a haibun while including what is included in the notes as part of the poem, mixed with the Haiku, that would be awesome! This poem is tremendous my friend, I truly loved reading this delightfully amazing poem this morning! What an outstanding piece, Great Work!!
