Your royal purple scarf explodes with color 
against unwelcome December chill--
25 degrees this morning, heater 
outside I pray will last another year,
working overtime.  Your scarf
is "for cooler Florida weather," you wrote
on an accompanying card, high-
lighting a milky moon over
an indigo Vermont landscape.

"It's why I love winter," you wrote, 
where skiing cross-country with your husband 
goes with frostbitten toes.  

Girls together, we were, both 
of us widowed now, in a sisterhood 
passing the half-century
mark, though I seek warmth
and you seek cold, moving 
ever Northward to find it.

    By the way, my sister and I used to play Fur Elise for fun. I invented a violin obbligato. Beethoven would have turned over...........Love again, Dave

    You don't want Michigan weather, Nola. We are rescuing four kittens that got a virus - coughing, sneezing, runny noses. After four days of antivirus and eye salve they are doing well. I want to wish you a happy holiday season. Stay warm and wonderful. Love, Dave
