The heating is on,
the cupboard is well stocked, with
almond milk, cocoa and xylotol.
my watercolour paints are out
and the CD player is not skipping,
a few good books to catch up with,
warm wooly socks,
a good film for later
and a big thick duvet to cuddle under.
come on autumn, come on winter
bring your long grey rainy days,
your early night falls,
your long dark rainy nights
now that i live in a town
in a warm and cosy nest
you’re welcome to go on and on.
now that i can walk to the library,
and to the local coffee shop,
now that i can ride my bike to the next village,
now that i am pretty much back pain free…
now that, know that, now what?!
