Temperature of the Soul

Paralyzing chill brought snow squalls 
straight into her soul.  Sounds, foreign,
page from handmade book by Suzanne Coley 
and unspeakable, formed cyan symphonies
in places she couldn't see. Vibrating memories,
an emotional blizzard.  Deep, low pitched
screams.  Defrosted time.
Pressure waves of the soul.

Walking through Clouds

I have been taking morning walks in tranquil Maryland meadows.  
There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.
