Hardened Teardrops

There is a sting to winter’s kiss cold memory reignited a vision through watery eyes a mirage of moments blighted weary tracks of empty snowshoes thinning lines on crest of hill swallowed by a cloudless sky the stinging bite of winter’s chill crystal tracks of hardened teardrops frozen on love’s time numbed cheeks wait in silence as they listen as love’s windblown distance speaks John G.

The imagery in this blew me across the frozen pond and over the snowbank.

Well, John, you have a new fan. I written several poems about tears. This is very moving. Superb, subtle imagery. Keep that pen going! Sally

The sting... the blurry-eyed vision... the hardened teardrops. Resonates totally with me, John. Thanks, gw
