Happiness Is Still Out There

At the very edge of Winter Lonileness , Where rain and fire blend On a late afternoon sky, The sun shifts beyond the line of a grey horizon, Last dying embers tick the vacant hours Between the" You " and I, Because- It Was Always You... The four winds blow behind past shadows, On a night that's dark and cold , But distant stars like white moon- roses bend and reach down for my soul; They twinkle softly in the air, like a blanket upon my skin like a shawl over my hair. Blinking...Playing so hard to forget Happiness is still out there.

It sure is. You paint it with a melancholic tone when you start: "at the very edge of winter loneliness". I like this piece. Thank you Char.
