Have a Cuppa

I’m a mug kind of gal –
Spot of tea – Earl Grey or herbal –

Feet up, mug in hand
a warm sip and I’m calm

Save the fancy china
for the birds!

(For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: glasses, cups, or saucers.)

Scenes From Ontario Winter

I cast my shadow over white banks
assert my presence, proud, defiant

Will find beauty in deserted golf courses
and colour in a monochrome season

I am haunted by a Winter state of mind
resolved to stretch myself despite creeping chill.

(Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge is winter scenes. This Winter I am challenging myself to endure a season that typically I escape. I am determined to find the blessings. So far, so good.)
