Winter Heart


The windows have begun to frost
Freezing our fingers at the touch
Our breath has begun to fog
To shroud our faces for a tenth of a second
To give us curious non smokers an illusion of what it’s like to smoke
The thicker, heavier blankets and jackets have been brought up from the basement
To shield our fragile bodies from the shivering cold
It’s the time for cuddling not just for affection but for warmth
Coffee, hot chocolate, and tea have turned into a need
Sitting by the heater with a big cup of coffee and a book has become a sport
It’s a lovely time of year, winter
So don’t let the cold get to you
Because we can always find a way to the warmth
