Mid-winter Magic


Snow blankets make earth warmer

Magnify light brighter

It pierces through my morning fog

I blink back, shaking off the grog

In cold air catch my wispy breath

Breathe deeper, trading life for death

Reflected sun careens through frosted glass

And heat now radiates forth where light has passed

Bathed in the glow my heart drums up a tune

“December can feel balmier than June.”
