Do ye imagine to reprove words...which are as wind? Job 6:26

The wind blew
Across the road
Lips so cold
They turn blue,
On our walk
To the mail box.
But I raise the camera
To my eyes
And let it talk,
As the snow flies
Capturing my husband
Braced against the wind
with letters in his hand.

Poetry by me AJP

Thank you so much Regenia, for the spotlight. I feel honored.
