Winter Days Free-Write

Bitter cold outside
tightening the lungs
as wind whips by
and sunlight deceives


A day to hide
in the blanket warmth
of home and love
and an old sweatshirt

Movies and football
drama and... drama
stealing glances
at my beautiful wife

Smiles and joy
heartwarming day
catching my wife
stealing glances at me

Winter days
have a warmth
of their own.
