MidWinter’s Eve

Party day for me and Most

is ready, enough is ready

that I can sit listening to

the creak of the house

with rain the far-off siren

my dogs’ sighing breaths

the melodious blue jay

the cogs of my brain turning

and connecting ticking off

what needs to be done

enjoying the thing of


a lovely feeling marred

only by the terrible news

of a friend whose


stops her cold

in her tracks.
