Thought Of

Today it snowed

layer upon layer

hour upon hour

so I stayed home

let the flakes

do their thing

dancing on air

as they are wont to do


I sank into

the luxury

of slow

wrapped in the

silence only

snow brings


My day passed

like a good dream

soft edges

and feelings of ease


As afternoon waned

the phone chirped

to tell me

that my neighbours

were heading to town

in their SUV

and did I need anything?

It’s the kind of offer

I’d make to them

a circular kindness

we care to share


The glow of this

spontaneous gift

lasted into the evening

a final piece to

complete my day


Happy on my own

and even happier

to be thought of
