I know I should be writing, but I can’t sit at my desk any longer.
Time to wonder outside and see the world, otherwise I’ll forget the sky’s color.
I’m always surprised by the color present in wintertime.
Sure, I miss the greens – but check out the golds, browns, and taupes.
Even the marsh in the nearby nature preserve has interesting scenes to offer.
I was so enthralled by the beauty,
I stopped looking where I was walking and stepped into this:
What the holy heck is this orange goo in the stream?
Not only is it in the water, but now it’s in my SHOE!
Like any responsible adult, I ran to my car,
drove home, and hid in my office.
I ain’t coming out ’til Spring.
What are you gonna do today?
