Climbing Reverently, Gratefully...

Photo by Tess Kincaide

The crunch
of fresh fallen
over night
frosted snow
swollen
booted feet
trudge
beneath
weary bones
from
the
night shift
tired eyes
a gloved hand
pull keys
from
 a warm pocket
focusing
on door knobs
which lead
to a kitchen
a kettle
warm tea
thick socks
slippers
and a
long
hot
steamy shower
before
climbing
reverently
gratefully
into
bed
for sweet
precious
sleep....

Thank you DJan. The picture was part of the challenge and was taken by Tess Kincaide at Willow Manor and also the creator of Magpie Tales. You might want to check them both out.

betty: Thank you so much!

Sandie: Thank you, I'm so glad you could relate.
