Year Warming

The Weather was out in force
for New Year's Day,
sentimental in the spirit of the season.
Snow at midnight,
full moon hanging heavy,
pearlescent before dawn
and sunshine bright all day.

Clear, blue skies,
ice-laced trees,
frosted fingers of frozen sunlight,
wrapped the day
in chilly warmth.

And friends
and soup
and fresh-baked bread
made this new year
warm and homely
from the start.

  1. Well put! I was in a midnight snowball fight with people I love, illuminated by the near full moon. Couldn't be bettered.
