I sit upon my window seat
All snug as a bug in a rug
Sun~beams filter in through
The skylight of my sunroom
Caressing me with toasty warmth

I gaze across the ice~bound lake
Kissed by fluffy frigid flakes
From an early morning snow squall
How beautiful it shimmers
A glittering diamond dust blanket

Across the way nestled in a
Patch of pearl tipped pines
Cozy cottage chimneys
Billow with shades of smokey blue~gray
As wisps of wind waltz them up and away

As I lookout over the frostbitten shore
I watch an old winter warrior bundled up
Trudging out to his favorite fishing hole
Red plaid jacket and matching cap
Adding a bit of cheer to the chill of morn

Before to long my quiet reverie will be but a memory
As the lake awakens to the hustle and bustle of
Snowmobiles, ice~skaters and sledders
Fun and laughter will magically fill the air
As I smile from my ringside seat
At
Old
Man
Winters
Wonderland

You know how I feel about your poetry, Miss Pinky. Extraordinarily penned, each and every one.

Ya, here comes the 'but'...

At
"Old
Man"
Winters
Wonderland
How come it can't be, "Old Woman Winter"? I'd like to see a little equal time here! See what you can do, will ya?

...just bein' Bluesy
