wildness under the skin…

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

  • today’s prompt suggested a beautiful title for the poem I submitted yesterday; so I hope nobody feels I am cheating by re-submiting:

… There is a wildness under the skin…

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
