A Frozen Wintry Road

mighty hills on both sides

the haughty river dancing jovially

the sight made my heart tremble

like an anxious bride-to-be…

melting frost and snow

began to slowly hypnotize

my wild wild heart

and this chagrined mind…

amidst cloud-kissing peaks

and pines so sky-high

I forgot how lonely I was

despite no soul in sight…

my heart grew fertile

rosy dreams galore

I felt like a new person

on a frozen wintry road…
