WIND CHILL
(1/8/15)


to stand
looking South
into the sun
on a blustery
January day
as the gusts
buffet
from behind

still
being able
to smile
at the minimal
warmth felt

is a sign
of acceptance

serenity

there
may not be
enough heat
from that distant
glowing orb
to save
a life
today

but there's
more
than enough
illumination
to save
a soul
