COLD FEET

Still, in my pajamas, cold, ‘tis Winter. Purple and gray wool socks, and still, cold feet. Yet i’d walk down into the oaks, with sun’s light be soaked, at the Summer-plumed heartbeat. Into the glowing moss and down the hill, like my grand, who’d make glorious foothold into the street. Still, alone, basking in happiness, woolen feet waltzing, toes cold, knuckles chapping, clapping of my steepled fingers. dry and joyful lips, arising, Dizzy, I'd survey the amphitheater - steam of cold-heat, underfoot apprising. O my soul, the crooning blue signature, expansive, inexpensive, pensive sky. Behold God’s goodness directed my way. Though fibbing from inside, I do not lie. The arms of my chair, still, caring, hold me or i’d jetty into my imagination. There the birds stir up woozy fairyland with tea and serenity’s coronation. 2/10/2021 Contest: All Yours (Feb 10) Sponsor: Brian Strand

Fascinating! It's really hard to choose, but I believe the last verse is my favorite, Kim.

Of so many fine lines, 'Though fibbing from inside, I do not lie' is my absolute favorite. Wonderfully penned, Kim. ~ Keep those feet warm now, Gershon
