Crossing the bridge, she looks over the rails and smiles. Patches of ice floating with the current.

letting it go,
over dark grey icy waters

Daily Moments – Feb 27/16

Relief

 

Plunging toes
in salty liquid
steam doth rose
from scalding heat,
soaking like a marinade
softens like a serenade
bathed in salted water
feeling such a deepened shift
startled, winded
from this swift
ache amended
gasps for air,
heart is seized
moments concede
tears that seep
and wet her cheek
clean,
saline,
cleanse her face
bathing eyes,
panes of the soul
halts the throb
her aching dole.
