Inside

Winter
still bites,
cold outside today.
I’ll stay inside, keeping
warm.

We did go out for a bike ride this morning, on the tandem, but it was cold. I haven’t felt warm since we got back – not until I put on an extra layer of clothing! The sun came through for a brief visit but with no warmth in it. We are forecast a cold week; Spring is in a slight retreat despite more blossom and daffodils in evidence.

Frost

Frost
lies white
across the lawn,
keeping me inside;
warm.

Other Men’s Words 1

“Who looks outside, dreams;
Who looks inside, awakes.”

Carl Jung

Wood-smoke

Inside, wood-burning stove alight
dispelling Autumn’s chill.
Outside a redolent fragrance;
wood-smoke on the breeze.
