Day 6: JusJoJan: Anticipation

snowy road and bare trees

COLD COMFORT

this winter frost
is blameless,
the icy creek won’t thaw.
a nameless bird
anticipates snow,
and cold cuts
bone and claw.

      1. When that happens to me I just drink hot drink after hot drink. The kettle gets a proper work out.

        1. I warmed with a few cups of tea, and then we went for a drive (the car has seat-warmers!) and I finally felt warm and toasty. The fishmonger is always at the local farm shop on Fridays, so we bought some hot smoked salmon and fresh eggs for dinner.
