My Beautiful Home

I lay back in the chair
The sun throws warmth onto the white landscape
Drips of snow fall from the glass rooftop
I close my eyes and feel warmth from the sun
The electric heater whirls in the background
My favourite blanket covers my legs
I drink down the warm soup
It radiates from me – inside out.
Winter is here once again
My favourite time of the year
Starlings fight for their piece of coconut
Gold finches fill up on bird seed
Amulet. Our precious cat. Watches from Inside.
She’s eager to get out
The squirrels frighten away the wood pigeons
They want their share of the nuts
I watch as this winter scene unfolds
From the warm comfort of my beautiful home
