A Moment…

Wednesdays are for taking a moment during the week and counting blessings, or telling funny stories, and anticipating the approaching weekend. I’d love for you to share your Wednesday moment in the comments or attach a link to your blog.

January has arrived in all its pale splendor. It can be a hard month of cold, dark, and full gym rooms. Here’s a poem I wrote to make it a bit better.

Puppy Dreams
Your head touching my elbow,
I watch over your shoulder
As your lashes droop and quiver
Fighting the sleep that is brought
By the winter weather.

The back mountain is invisible
Through the slow snow falling,
And the light no longer shines
Like an arrow. It is a halo
Over angelic woodlands.

Open, close, close, open
Until your body jerks once
Your ears soften, and
You bark softly at a memory
As you drift into slumber.

How are you coping with January’s chill and gloom?
