JANUARY

Image

I heard January in the wind last night, tearing the last oak leaves from their branches and whining through the long needles of the White Pine. January seeped beneath the doorsill, leaving frost in its wake. It carved trails in the dunes of snow with its precise blades, leaving frigid, sculpted drifts behind. January set the house to moaning late last night, its bones cracking like an old man’s, offering only bone chilling cold to numb its pain. January sunshine, low and weak, carries little warmth. Early evenings send us scurrying home before the temperatures plummet into the starry ice of another winter night. January drives us in, settles us by the fire for books and conversation, demanding reflection of those too timid to brave its elements.
