Satin Sheet


Kneeling down on her soft bed, I follow my
hollow sounding, vapour trail of hot breath.
My hands hold the deep, voluptuous curves
of an ice maiden, languishing e’er long this coldest
of winters. A contradiction; how easy she melts
at the first caress, and too soon my heart aches
for the callous black ice to preserve the footprints
of yesteryear – sadly only imprinted forever in memory
– quickly they disappear in warmer times. Is it by tender
touch and passionate farewell or does the iconic
Lady of Winter, as yet unloved, simply
shake off her shrill wrap and vanish once more.

I write poetry/prose/stories/short stories/verses for children/sketch/and have 6 chapters of a novel sitting there like that half eaten trifle in the fridge or bottle of Jack Daniels because something makes you afraid to eat it or drink... right now.. I am a proud Geordie from England's northern hemisphere and the beautiful city of Newcastle upon Tyne. I live with my lovely husband who came all the way from sunny California just for me, and my favourite animal, Bobble, our dog. I am a member of Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth and wish we could all do more, especially today, when such a lot is wrong.
