The sleeves had grown longer as the sun settled down
air windy and brisk
after a balmy Fall sun,
feeling the changes
as life rearranges
my thinning blood into water so cool.
Freezing in slumber no heat in the keep
for tomorrow the sun rises
to warm us poor sheep
and snow in the North is a long thought away
just keep it up there forever I say.
No ice on the oranges
no frost on the limes
I can’t eat the grapefruit so I think those are fine,
I bundle my bod in my clothes from the chest-
never thinking I’d need them till February at best.
Off with the hounds at a mushers fast pace
they love this cold weather and to the squirrel tree they race
as I muddle along with a curse on my tongue
“not yet” screams my thoughts
as they try to keep warm, no sound is heard yet
from my cold frozen tongue.
On Apple, on Chi bag there’s vermin to chase
and off to the black top
eight paws running wild
as I sing the poor song from Rocky to lighten my mood
and hubby with camera now captures me and the brood
as the sun rises up
she takes off the warm cap
and smiling at last does one final lap,
then into the house for the breakfast that waits
on a cold November day she will trot off to work
and sell the new favorite on a day like today
Peanut butter chocolate decadent gelato
not sure how many takers they’ll be
as I’m sure as I stand in the frozen food aisle
I’ll look perky like oranges
with a frozen happy smile 🙂
Having a bit of fun today, woke to the bedroom at 67 degrees and a brisk 46 degrees outside. Expected to see frost on the pool at least, thank heavens it wasn’t to be, but out comes the Buffalo hat to keep the lid warm….I almost kept it on for the whole walk….almost….Got a lot of interesting expressions from the drivers heading to work, but the girls are Loving the cold…..now off to sell Gelato. Brrrrr…..stay warm folks and keep that nasty snow to yourselves please, and thank you.
