Mighty Old Warrior

Pain, instilled within Goes into a state of numbness… Mighty old warrior
• The ice cube sent me into pain at first for a while then my hand went numb from the extreme cold that I felt…then the water was dripping from the cracks of my fingers. And this continued until the ice cube melted. A little pain came back to my hand while I was waiting for the numbness to subside. But I couldn’t represent this within my Haiku. I enjoyed this hands on contest. It was unique and fun. Russell Sivey Contest: ICE KING (in less than 10 lines) For the adventures one. Sponsor: SKAT - OZ 7/19/2013
