Poem: Free us from the Arctic Blast




…Venturing out into the arctic tundra chill
Where the bleak cold frozen air hangs so still…

Winter snow boots crunch upon the hibernating ground,
as the echoes of their journey are heard all around…

Frozen in time, ice dances across the window sills,
while my shivering hand runs across the pane, giving me cold chills.

Breath is fair, as my lungs attempt to
block out the raw polar air…

Such an intense arctic blast,
For all humans and creatures pray for
your short lived visitation,
in hopes, that this terrible Siberian abomination
will soon be a memory of the past…

This deadly chill is silent and lonely…
For we can only hope for a ray of sunshine and warmth,
to bring us relief and a sincere testimony.

“Within the depths of our mind, we are battling the duel of light and darkness…good and evil…love and hate…” Between Light and Darkness is Ariana’s most recent collection of poetry… Cherry’s frequent message she delivers throughout her work is, “The journey through the darkness, back into the light.” Her hope is to let others know that they won’t be in that place of darkness for long – that they indeed can reach the light once again…She also wants her readers to know – that – it is okay if they find themselves in that bleak blackness…Sometimes we feel guilty for going to that dark place – but it is necessary to conquer the demons that battle our souls…. Other books that Cherry has written include "Only If" and "Twisted Paths Poetry." Her epic tale, “Only If,” won the “Reader’s Favorite Award” and a 5 star review…and her collection, “Twisted Paths Poetry,” received a 5 star review from Realistic Poetry International. She has been writing ever since she was a child. Some of her inspirations include Edgar Allen Poe, Robert Frost, Stephen King, Emily Dickinson, Christopher Pike and Shel Silverstein. Ariana writes a variety of genres: inspirational, humorous and horror – although writing horror is one of her favorites…. She was 12 years old when she read Poe for the very first time – which inspired her epic poetry tale, “Only If.“ During other parts of her free time, she enjoys taking photos and creating art. Her “day-jobs” include working as a church administrative aide and reporting for a local newspaper.
