Frosty Player

Cold shoulders,

frigid stare;

numbed emotions,

glacial air.

Veins of ice

that chill to the bone –

frosty player

with soul of stone.


This piece marks poem 400!  This was not begun as a poetry blog.  But my readers enjoyed and supported my first attempts – and a poet has been born!  THANK YOU!

    Melody, I could sit at your feet and learn from you. I’ve been a poet for a long time…but feel I need to learn some new stuff. Ever thought about teaching about poetry on your blog? I am finally catching up on times past when my schedule was so busy I had no time to stop in. This morning has been so refreshing to linger and stay awhile at your posts! Thanks friend so sharing!

    In response to your comment about the broken system of foster care…Yes, but you and I know a God who can work around the system and bring healing to those broken places in people’s lives…Prayer changes things…will you pray with me for Gracie?

  12. Congratulations of 400! Wow! Here’s to 400 more. 🙂
