Embracing the Cold

It was bitterly cold and made me shiver,

the prospect of enduring more made me quiver.

 

I buttoned up and ventured forward,

I braced myself and continued toward.

 

Going quickly was not the answer,

I had to slow down and embrace the cold.

 

A measured response of absorbing the chill,

makes it possible to inhale Her will.

 

Regardless of temp, I talk the talk,

in withering weather, I walk the walk.
