I leave the shades open tonight
to watch the live performance of
snow against a moonless sky.
I settle into my window chair
burritoed in a fuzzy blue blanket
sipping a hot cup of peace.
Special thanks to Rachel’s Thirtysomething Life post called Coloring. She writes about a “satisfying HOT cup of tea in peace” that I used as inspiration for this poem.
May I also suggest a companion piece you may enjoy, How to Sit in a Chair and Drink Tea.
Happy New Year!
