This is a very old poem from my journals. I took it out and edited it a bit. It is one of my favourites, as it never fails to bring back the memories.

like a rush
of arctic wind
that scuttles over
a winter pond
dusting hoarfrost on reeds,
we sat, stiff , cold
as strangers

no words, no words pass between us today.
no words, no words she said.

Oh I loved this poem! Poetry is at its most powerful when brief. I stumbled here through Magiceye's blog. Nice to be here :)
