  2. Chilling wisps of light moisture on my face
    Cools as traces of a tedious daily journey remain upon my weary soul
    Startling joy! These words so fresh and melodic!
    Formed from passion and appreciation of all the beauty that prose can be – yea the gods have surely heard my plea!
    A note of gratitude. For now my heart is warm…
