I lay back in the chair

The sun throws warmth onto the white landscape

Drips of snow fall from the glass rooftop

I close my eyes and feel warmth from the sun

The electric heater whirls in the background

My favourite blanket covers my legs

I drink down the warm soup

It radiates from me – inside out.

Winter is here once again

My favourite time of the year

Starlings fight for their piece of coconut

Gold finches fill up on bird seed

Amulet. Our precious cat. Watches from Inside.

She’s eager to get out

The squirrels frighten away the wood pigeons

They want their share of the nuts

I watch as this winter scene unfolds

From the warm comfort of my beautiful home
