After the Solstice

night snow

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!

  1. A cup of tea for me represents peace and quiet after the kids have gone to bed. 🙂

    Incidentally, I particularly like the first part of the poem with the performing snow lit up by the Moon. It sounds beautiful.
