Entry in Stormy Lady's February contest using drift, snowflake, fireplace
My thoughts do drift in lazy time,
As sparks from glowing embers climb
The soot enhanc - ed fireback,
The inner chimney layered black.
From the sky a snowflake falls
From the north a cold wind calls,
Soon the landscape will be white
As virgin as a maid's first night.
The flickering flame illuminant
From that fireplace nigrescent,
Warming body, soul and mind
Allowing time to unwind.
