okay...i walked into my sunroom with huge open windows and the breeze blew through my hair, and, uh...i thought of this...

The cool, summer night’s breeze,

Rushes through the open window.

It sweeps in around me,

Whispering through my hair

And tickling my skin


The cold night’s air, is, in itself, warmth

As a memory far in the distance,

Threatens to break free.

Of a night like tonight,

When the summer night’s breeze blew through my hair

And I was all alone,

And it was dark,

And it was cold,

And it was bone chillingly

Careless verses... keep it up... the night surely spins myriad images and conjures up imagination not know before...

Are you living in trepidation of this memory; and is it the ambiance of the night which helps you keep that memory at bay..
Is that what makes it chillingly perfect.
I don't mean to be mean spirited about the poem.
Its just that its not as clear to me as it is obviously is to the many commentators above .
The wording is tender and beautiful.. and the piece is undoubtedlly well constructed
But forgive me but the point eludes me.

well, the cold breeze creates a bit of an eerie feeling--raising goosebumps, and such...the memory is warm, and perfect, and happy. The "bone chillingly" is just the cold breeze that makes me so happy and content...if that makes's kind of hard to explain.
Thanks, anyway:)

Nice Catherine, You give a strong point in what your feeling and I adore that. You had me zoned out on the beautiful days for quite a bit. I like to re read poems so I know what that person was feeling but I didn't have to re read this one. It came simple and original.

Good Work

This is the second poem I've read of yours. The first was "Mama, Mama". Poetry is so subjective.

I wonder if you substituted the word "caressing" in place of "tickling" in the first stanza. For me, the "s" sound fits a bit better with the other word choices used. Also, I don't associate whispers with tickling. However, I do know lots of people mix the two just fine. --big grin--

Please understand, I still enjoyed your piece as it was written.

:D Thanks! I'll have to go over it again and see if "caressing" would work better. Thanks so much for the tip!
