Winter Gripes

"When it snows, you have two choices;
shovel snow or make snow angels"
~Anonymous

Our passionate wish to be somewhere tropical
 
For over here; days are shorter, nights are colder
 
With AC off electricity much lower,
 
But gas consumption has gone astronomical!
 
Sun we haven’t seen, wondering where it has gone
 
Snow, ice, sleet, rain interrupted by cloudy days
 
Not much to do except to watch dull matinees,
 
And then read a dozen books from dusk until dawn...
 
Really! we must go out rather than vegetate
 
Close our eyes; face winter’s invigorating breeze
 
Feel alive, feel the movement of the leaf-less trees
 
Forget our gripes, make winter not so desolate!
