In our love nest
watching snow gather.
You say it’s not as
pretty as I am though.
Unloosening my clothes
throwing them and everything
from the bed. Warmer warmer
we want our time together.
When the moon is full
faces of frost cover
our window. We will
nestle asleep while storms
drift past the night.

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR: I left the comforts (?) of Brooklyn, New York, and its radiator heat to live in New England. My Michael and I lived in both Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Let me tell you that not everybody on the East Coast is rich, but New England people are very cool. I will never forget the warm welcome I received up North.
