Fool's Gold

The setting sun
paints the sky with gold
bathing everything
in a delicious
golden glow.

Fool's gold,
but I'll take it.

Helps me forget
it's still

Winter's Bite

Winter has been gnashing its teeth at us!

Wherever the icy rains land
they stick
and freeze mid-action,
creating beautiful, frozen statues.

Branches groan under the weight of their heavy cloak
and power lines crack and fall,
leaving many people without electricity.

So, we create a light of our own,
with stories and games,
laughter and patience.

(The power outage only lasted 26 hours for us.
So all is well, no need for anyone to worry.)
