Seagull on ramp, waves
covering his orange feet.
And the rain comes down.

Rushing from one place
to another, searching for
something. Then go home.

Snuggling in cashmere
with a heating pad in bed.
Warm and toasty bliss.

The crush of people
searching for great deals and steals.
Boxing Day shopping.

Pines covered in snow
line the high hill by the house.
They look like Christmas.

Outside the window
I view the fresh snow sparkling.
People shovel out.

Planting spring bulbs in
pots outside my door while the
rain pelts down on me.

The wind lashes on
the trees and they scrape windows.
I curl up with tea.

Olympic mountains
with freshly fallen bright snow.
The sea laps calmly.

Speckled birds hiding
in the low hedge waiting, but
then they fly away.

Chill air greets me as
I walk out my back door, wrap
my wool coat tighter.

Seagulls playing in
the brisk wind by the ocean.
They sail high upwards.

River otter eats
crab while seagulls squawk at him.
But he doesn't care.

Pebbles thrown up from
the ocean’s depths wait for waves
to carry them back.
