happy things on a rainy day

quilt warmed by breaths
tight over my shoulders
strawberry cake in the oven
filling the house with its summery scent
when you lick your lips you can taste it.

heather-grey sky
on the other side of the window
raining droplets down
to the green earth
green as life itself.

thick book weighing down my knees
pages yet to be read
crimson ribbon bisects the first page
the promise of a red fire
kindled on black-streaked snow.
