Not All Traveled Grounds Run Smooth

by Stephanie Alfaia

Cold feet slip on thin ice
howling unforgiving winds
frostbite beg fingers to return
to sweet home, comfort, yearn.

But where is this home hardship calls?
For I see mountains as my kinsman,
glistening snow, as distant friend,
and shaking bones, as crying newborn.

Nomadic wandering is far from ease
fallen leaves and crippling trees.
despite gray frowned clouds,
the travel is worth unpaved grounds.

Glowing eyes under winter’s avail
shattering teeth, yet the smile prevails
“What does thou seek in morbid trails?”
Question from he who routine jails.

Limbs sore with deepened colors
Browns and blues for broken chains
Let pain shatter for it affects me not
My soul evolves even with trips distraught.

I’ve been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found
any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.
In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did,
the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
I am sure this post has touched all the internet users, its really really good paragraph on building up new webpage.
It’s very effortless to find out any matter on web as compared to books,
as I found this paragraph at this web site. http://cspan.org
