Winter Joy

What a day for dancing

when brisk cold cuts

your clothes, burns

your nose, steals

your breath.

What a day for dancing.

  1. My dogs want to dance when it is like that and even though I am not a fan of killer cold there is something invigorating about it.

    I really like it but it will probably read even better in summer. Too much cutting of clothes and wet boots for me of late.


  2. haha…thanks Opoetoe…to tell you the truth I was feeling pretty sarcastic when I wrote this. I was out feeding my dog and thinking…gosh, it’s cold, but he was just “dancing” around like he was the happiest he’s ever been. He’s a husky, so I guess he is pretty happy with the cold. So, I sort of wrote this in response to his “happiness”. Me, I like hot weather!
