A Beautiful Day

The snow piles higher and higher
The temperature drops lower and lower.
The tea kettle fills cups meant
To sit beside a blanket and a book.
It’s a beautiful day to
Make a snowman,
Take a photo,
Simmer homemade soup,
And breathe the icy crisp of winter
Into warm lungs fill of life.

  1. It’s a beautiful day here in North Carolina. Not common for me since I am from Illinois. A vast difference to walk around today without a jacket and enjoy the breeze. It’s a great day to be alive and with a beautiful sunset makes this day the best.

  2. Start with tea, hotand spicy in my favorite cup.
    Add conversation with my husband,
    a check of online life and friends,
    breakfast of eggs and toast,
    dogs to be petted,
    robe, slippers,
    lamps on.
    It’s the start
    of a beautiful day
    on Railey Ridge Road
    in the middle of nowhere, WV.
