Daily Prompt: Shiver

via Daily Prompt: Shiver

Shiver. Too cold for comfort, even with your arms around me.

Contemplate the feeling of wholeness, warmth, consolation,

No separation from you or who you are.

Shiver. Not a time to ponder what might have been.

Consequently, I’m moved by your devotion, your intention

To bring me back to where I believed it could not go wrong.

Shiver. The one that got away, with time to play on my affections,

Blundering in, no remorse just a course set straight and true

Through my heart with no comeback, no apology.

Shiver. Relief fills my bones, my veins, my every breath

When I’m reminded of what could’ve been, the unseen dangers

Of an open road without you.

And when I’m here, in your embrace, in the closeness of your heart

I shiver with anticipation at what’s to be.




There's always stuff in life we're not sure of. I'm thankful , and eternally grateful, to have a love for God. Yes, I've put my life, my family, my everyday existence, into God's more than capable hands. Some would say I'm mad, some would pooh pooh the idea... As General Melchett once remarked in Blackadder Goes Forth.."You know, if there's one thing I've learnt from being in the Army, it's never ignore a pooh-pooh. I knew a Major, who got pooh-poohed, made the mistake of ignoring the pooh-pooh. He pooh-poohed it! Fatal error! 'Cos it turned out all along that the soldier who pooh-poohed him had been pooh-poohing a lot of other officers who pooh-poohed their pooh-poohs. In the end, we had to disband the regiment. Morale totally destroyed... by pooh-pooh!" So, have a read, have a think. I don't have all the answers, but I know a man who has ;-)
