Mindful Writing 2014 – 05

I’ve slept halfway through the storm.

The back half of the house is 70% window, and as I come upstairs I see snow blowing up, down, to the side. The trees in the backyard are like ocean breakers parting sea spray.

Everything beyond—the lake, the houses—has all but vanished.

rattling chimney
I huddle deeper
into the heating blanket
