Morning in Amesbury

12/25/2009

My nose and the faucet both drip
the sounds crisp against passing cars
the house is still and just past noon
cold air urges lazy bones to seek the shelter of blankets
and warm bodies
this is a home, despite the chill
all are comforted in the presence of family
taking the sharp edges of sound
and covering them in down embraces
leaving muffled silence and happy thoughts

  1. Ah, yes. The comfort of cozy blankets in a winter chill. Nice.
