shivering

Poets’ Pub prompt from https://dversepoets.com/

anticipation is it

of the cold to enter my skin

as I sit in the central-heated room

for days now

or of success my life’s work might finally see

or failure for that matter?

today I have let her music fill the room

and I know:

it’s anticipation of more warmth

has me shiver

  1. I like the unexpected idea of the warmth causing the shiver!

  2. some stark contrasts in this poem of anticipation and uncertainty that lovely couple of lines: l
    “oday I have let her music fill the room

    and I know”

  3. I think too that anticipation can be stronger than anything coming into fruitation

  4. Anticipation and shivering do make fitting companions. I like anticipation of more warmth coming also.

  5. And who could wish for a better reason to shiver? Nicely done!

  6. What a lovely piece!

  7. Beautiful!

  8. Wonderfully done!

  9. it’s anticipation of more warmth
    has me shiver
