Chilly Shoulders

Chilly Shoulders
By Teri H Hoover©


Chilly shoulders.
The new black shawl.
Smooth and tidy, the pilling has not yet begun.
I wonder how long until that first unsightly snag.

Waiting

Waiting by Teri H Hoover©
12-16-2015


Listless and ungrounded
the tethers are snapping
one
by
one

A cacophony of silence
breaks the heart and
light illuminates the ashes.
