Still here


















all the breath and all the wind
I have gathered
has not cleared me
of your touch

which reached under my skin
into my blood and bone
where I hold

you, still
close to my heart
curled deep inside me

glimmering
like a sleeping
star

Just exquisite--the poem, the photo--cutting deeply and delicately...the most beautiful snow picture I have seen!

Love is in the air!! As beautiful a love poem as ever I've read. The picture is great, even if it is of that snow and ice.

I had a differrent reaction than Pat's. I ached when I read this, seeing a loss of the loved one with only the memory of touch curled like a sleeping star...a little gem of a poem and another of a photo.

Some things cannot be blocked, even by Mother Nature. Thank you for the touch, the reminder.
