Winter Warmth

The pile of firewood sits untouched
like a lonely game of pick-up-sticks,
and the windows are open
to let in the warm breeze.
It is fifty-seven degrees.

Are we sure this is January?


  1. I like your pick-up-sticks game allusion. It has been warm, no? I'm not complaining, though it may damage our snowpack.

  2. Enjoy every precious fresh, mild breath of it. There will be plenty of time for that firewood.

  3. It's the same up here in Victoria. I love it!

  4. How I wish I had a fireplace!
    Yes, I did know we were in the PNW, I'm often in WA and OR... Still, for some odd reason I hadn't placed Bellingham anywhere near where it is (I have since googlemapped ;-) it!)

  5. Cool photo - no warming up needed!
    I love your simile to pick-up-stix - truly imagintive narrative.
