December Morning

December Morning

 

December morning

gray blanket sky

wrinkled with light

cold, sad, forecast

of days to come

 

Snowflakes fall

like powdered sugar

sifted over cookies

warm from the oven

 

The tree in the corner

exhales sweet pine

I take hot cocoa comfort

and remember
