A Chill Sets In

It was hot,
Then it was not.
The chill became palpable
Unbearable
Unreasonable.

Why so cold?
The estrangement from the heat
Boggled the mind.
The closeness of tepid temperatures
Gave way to the distant wind that blew
Frosty air into the lungs,
Into the heart.

Seasons of life
Unstoppable, by one imperfect mortal.
Search for warmer climes,
To keep the lungs breathing,
The heart from aching.
To keep limbs from freezing
In the icy gloom.
