Inglenook – A Quadrille

White breath
in cold air
Rosy cheeks
glowing in firelight
as it dances 
in soulful eyes
warms the spirit
as joyful conversation
is fluid and flowing
Intimate moments
that have given life
to memories never
to be forgotten
living in the heart forever

Linda Lee Lyberg from Charmed Chaos is hosting Monday
Quadrille at D'Verse Poets tonight and has prompted
us with the word "Inglenook"
For those of you not familiar with the word, here is a definition:
INGLENOOK (noun,English)- A close intimate corner
by a fireplace where people gather for warmth;
from ingle, a hearth (Scots)
Source: OtherWORDly words both strange
and lovely from around the world.

We are to write a quadrille which is a poem of exactly
44 words excluding the title.
