Freezing February Morning
Wake up in a darkened room and see that the sun is out. Sun’s bright rays cracking through curtain’s gaps.
Stay under the blanket together. He goes to make the coffee. The aroma drifts through the doorway.
He comes back under. Stay. Warm.
Course of nature. Delight. Rest.
Awaken fully. Up and out.
Barefeet out the bedroom door. Bright, blinding rays of sun.
Walls of wood. Warm.
Cover of snow on the ground. Eyes burning.
Light a fire.
