Walking with you

The icy wind blows through blushing our cheeks, Eyes stinging and watering, and mouths tinted purple. Snow flurries whirl around us nipping at our ears; making our breath white and heavy. So, we pretend to smoke. But wide grins give away our game With hearts purging laughter, We look long at each other, Eyes glinting sincerely happy sighs. City sidewalks stretching out Before concrete winterlands, And you and me walking, Holding and swinging our hands.

When your muse leaves it is a sign that you are bored with YOUR BOX, the pattern of your life is too familiar, you might try going somewhere new, a small trip alone by car, a long trip by plane, OR do something othes have found stimulating which you have not done and thought YUCK..LOL..for me that would be like OPERA! LOL if millions of people love it and you haven't tried it try it! I always find sacred sites inspiring..actually there are sacred sites from the native americans all over the USA

Love the beauty of your words to describe such a cold day. I have memories of snow days like that. I don't really care for snow, lol, but love this piece. Monica

A surprising anticlimax to the crescendo of feelings ... edit the final "and" substitute a "the" and accentuate the meaning and purpose of hands with mystery ... just my way of messing with perfection, friends can do that.

I think all kids who are fortunate to have a cold winter have done what your words describe >> James
