She’s Frozen

She’s frozen to

her window of opportunity,

fear an icy irresolution

dripping in rivulets

down her neck.

She wonders if she is enough,

has what it takes,

can survive the fall

if her venture fails.


sits on the cusp,


waiting for a warm hand

and steady heart

to melt her

    Wonderful imagery. Melody the artist sings like Emily Dickinson in these latest poems… 🙂
