022 – Frostbite Daydreams

Winter’s kiss stretches as far as the eye can see
As the morning sun slowly creeps along the sugar white snow

I stand with the warm heat of the furnace at my back
Daring myself to layer in deep thread and adventure out

The world is quiet
Mine for the taking
I can already hear the crunch of untouched snow underfoot
And I smile
Considering it will be me breaking nature’s silence

I can also see the warm soup waiting for my return
As my cold icicle fingers tremble
Trying to grab the cup

There is so much adventure ahead
On this new cold season day
But first
I need to brush my teeth
And maybe consider changing out of my slippers and PJs
