Just Plain Foolish

Just a chance for an old-fashioned, simple storyteller to say what needs to be said.

Winter silence

I long for winter silence
the soundless hush
of snow covered evergreens
and wordless amazement
at star-bright midnight.

I want to hold your hand
through woolen mittens
and point to Cassiopea,
lounging in the heavens,
while Orion faces the Bull.

I want to share hot cocoa
straight from the thermos,
the kind with cinnamon,
as we head home, arm in arm,
and the heavens wheel above.

You'd love the weather we've been having for almost a month now. It's definitely mittens and hot cocoa.
