The sigh of breath froze in the air,
A cloud of comment, hushed.
If I'd said aloud the warmth,
Perhaps we would have ignored the ice around, among, and within -
And laughed at winter's sleeping....
But I did not.
I only closed my eyes, and opened them again,
To watch the cloud drift near your imagined form,
Warmed, in my mind's eye, like some great lion,
Nuzzling me expectantly in the
Having suddenly been awakened.
