Frost bites a heart of flesh
Sheets and sheets of ice A fireplace and warm words to the rescue From the wicked grip of a wintry vice!
A short one this time. Sending all of you lots and lots of warmth and heartfelt Christmas wishes ✨✨

Why is home so cold?
The fireplace burns And the birds have returned But why is home so cold? Come, lay with me, she said But that’s a stranger in my bed Why is home so cold? The sapling has bloomed The threat of summer looms But why is home so cold? It’s quieter than ever Unlike it’s been in forever Still, I ask, Why is home so cold?
Hugged by cozy feels
Sitting by the fireplace, I Dream of you once more

Bats found residence in my fireplace
discovering shelter in protective brick walls. Cold fronts attack in sunshine absence I want to ignite a flame but I fear the bats will infest my home a home the bats see as an addition to my fireplace.
Flowers wither away
They form a blanket of petals Through the fall they decay In winter, the snow settles I hide my hands in sleeves Of my cotton sweater Stomping on the swathes of leaves Welcoming the autumn weather The rain pours nearly every evening I sit and write by the lit candles At night I fall deep into dreaming Covered in warm blankets The fireplace sooths the numbness And hot tea warms up my body Imagination cures the dullness I'm mesmerized by the smell of coffee
