Just as Springtime begins to open her eyes
There comes an icy fingertip tap tapping her shoulder
“Remember me?” whispers the voice of Winter

The freeze came early this year…
I shiver to myself as the frost spreads across the window…
Digging through the bottom dresser draw for lost wool socks…
I wonder if my toes will ever feel warm again…
Buried beneath my Grandmother rough knitted afghan…
I steep my nose in the rising steam from a mug of orange tea…
Still snacking on the left-over pies from Thanksgiving…
My brain and body want nothing more than to curl up…
and hibernate till Spring…
January has come in December…
Here’s hoping March arrives early too…

Thanks a lot “Arctic Wind”…
Stay warm out there…
Unless you live where it’s warm…
In that case… send some of that heat to me!
