Thoughts of you are
warm sun rays through
wintry windows

I touch the glass
and my fingers flinch
at the cold pane.

    There is a whole story behind this–you’ve encapsulated a relationship in few words. Bravo.

    In the cold winter we must find our warmth where we can. You said so much with so few words, and an excellent take on the prompt.

    What a wonderful contrast of warm and cold ~ Love the short and snappy lines ~

    NICE. Holy cow. This is pithy, and profound.

    That flinch from that cold pane said a lot! Excellent!

    I admire your ability to condense a story! Illusions of love…can be a simple matter of hot vs. cold.

    The cold and warm, the separation.. It’s all there, a strong metaphor
