I am cold, even though the heat of early summer is adequate. I am cold because I cannot find my heart.
Sebastian Barry from A long long way
I shiver icicled; I’m
with Hel withheld;
I’m in your presence
frozen, promise shattered,
spilled on marble, lost.
Why is the sun so old today?
Today at dVerse Walt is hosting and have an interview with Laurie Kolp who used to be a host at dVerse when I started writing there. Come and read the interview, write your own poem inspired by the quote, or both.
* Note; Hel is the goddess of the underworld in Norse Mythology.
