TEN BELOW VARIATIONS

TEN BELOW VARIATIONS

it’s ten below
          no place to go
warm roots asleep

sunny sky high
       ten degrees below
birds like shadows in the snow

         branches 
   weave a tangled web
ten below       with snow

so cozy inside
coffee
my fat persian licks itself

drifting snow
ten below zero
mind sliding down a rooftop

    Oh well, you are a champion at bringing the reader into your moment, Daver. Kiwi is downstairs, I've only the computer and a window with a view of the stark sky with tons of snow sleeping the day away. I suppose I should have my "mind sliding down a rooftop"...a very clever image to indulge in. Keep well, stay safe, love, Mikki
