Our hearth’s miasma,

sweat's inching ashore, met but

a glacial response.

    It’s over my head at the moment, but I don’t mind that. It gives me something to look forward to — researching new words and continuing to find meaning with each read. I have an inkling, but not a full understanding, and to me, THAT is rather fresh. I particularly love this image. It really sets the vibe and tone of the writing. Well done!
