Cold [Friday Fictioneers]

Don’t be jealous; your turn will come.

I see you over there cold & yearning for my warmth.

The shadows will keep you company while I make my way.

Patience, I will be there soon.

What I’m able to provide, many need.

I’m busy making others swoon.

Your bitterness will not stop my arrival.

I’ll make a promise to be there, early afternoon

I’ll make the frost disappear.

Your colors reappear.

I may not stay as long as you’d like

Perhaps the moon can appease you until tomorrow

Don’t be jealous; your turn will come

  1. Dear Jen,

    Haven’t seen you here before. If this is your first visit then welcome to the party, pal. If not, my apologies for being so unobservant.

    I loved the voice of your MC. I have a favorite phrase that came about from where I work. ‘The sun always rises.’ Signifies the end of my work ‘day’ and the start of my time off. Your story was beautiful, well written and full of hope. Well done.

    1. Doug,
      Thank you so much for your kind words. They’re encouraging as Fiction is a newer adventure for me & a bit out of my comfort zone.
      I hear though – very few results come from comfort zones.
      I’ve participated in Friday Fictioneers a few times in the past & decided it was time to come back and feel a bit uncomfortable. 🙂
      I’ll be back next week.
      Thanks again!


  2. No wonder ancient people worshipped the sun. Its appeal is undeniable – your piece captures the longing for its warmth and light that warm our bodies and souls.
