Listen Closely To Hear Your Name

Updated on November 23, 2016

The Wind Whipping Loudly

I am just getting up

The sun casts shadows across the trees

The first light snow has touched down

Frost and ice have come around

I look into my cabinets to pull out some food

Where a squirrel wishes he had it so good

He races up and down

Looking for just one acorn

Where is it ?

Burried under the frosty landscape

As a sudden sneeze causes my body to shake

I see a branch twisted and broken still clinging on

Like a mother to her child

She will not let go

The thermastat is set on a comfortable 64

When the real temperature is 34

Planning my day

A small wish list waits

A combination of cleaning and things I have to get done

Trying to accomplish as much as I can

Before my job summons my return

All I can hear is my bones cracking

Uneffected by time

The clock silently ticks

Not skipping one beat

I get up and shuffle my feet

Quickly I finish eating

I get dressed and off I go

      Michael-Milec I worked for years in and out of cold weather. I use to walk around in t-short and shorts all year in the house. Now I wear a sweatshirt sometimes in the day and long pajamas and bathrobe at night if I get a chill. My body is changing too. Thank you for following up on my comment.

      Happy Thanksgiving to you too- everyday.

      A time has changed, my friend. In old country I used to sleep in unheated room so that a frost has appeared as I was breathing. However as my body gets older, I have to accomodate it up to 70 degree for comfortable restful nightly sleep.

      Michael-Milec Cool air keeps me awake. If I put the temperature to the 70's or higher I get so relaxed and even sleepy. After awhile your body adjusts and when you do go out in the cold it's a little colder not a lot colder. Don't get me wrong in the summertime I love the weather in the 80's. I could sit in the warm sun and lay back and dream my day away. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. I wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving and may we all be blessed.

      Isn't it a bit chilly 'comfortable 64' for those "Noisy bones crack"? My bones demand a few degrees higher for comfortable inside temperature.
