winter taps on my window


And, of course,
I invite him in
to sit for a while,
offering tea and cookies
and the chance to warm
cold toes by the fire.

He is grateful
for the company,
a bit tired of
the cold shoulder,
always feeling

I pass the plate
and smile politely,
failing to mention
how often
I dream
of spring.

    it is just a small secret and he didn’t need to hear. he just needed a bit of warmth and companionship.
