Inside Looking Out - Mindful Writing Challenge



outside:
trees trunks flocked white 
branches waving skyward
wind chill plummeting
gusts rattling windows
sheets of snow whipping
winter storm warning




inside:
warm triple-chocolate brownies 
peppermint steam rising from tea
fresh bread wafting cinnamon
fire flickering its invitation
book open on my lap
awaiting the storm

  3. Is this the storm that we have been "snow dancing" to bring on? Hope so. Glad you are snugly back in your home after the medical adventure in Denver.

  7. Enough to make me wish for winter. Maybe just a few days of it snowed in by the fire? (I hate cold, so you must realize that your words are truly beautiful and powerful to make it sound wonderful!)
