Dawn lights the pink wall
Apple tree limbs cast shadows
Illusion of warmth

You know it’s cold when
you’re reading ’bout a frozen
car battery. Jeesh.

Cold and windchill can’t
be the topic—how boring—
weather, blah, blah, blah.

A below zero
morning. Snow crunching, nostrils
sticking kind of day.

It’s a cold morning —
minus 13 with windchill —
I yearn for zero.

A bright sun rises
on a crystalline landscape
of below zero.

Well, how cold is it?
Cold enough to freeze Skeeter’s
paws when on a walk.

Well below zero —
I walk at dawn and feel so
virtuous (and cold).

So cold this morning —
the dog lifted his feet high —
pads on frozen snow.

Below zero here —
actual temp, not wind-chill —
snow squeaks and crunches.
