Bad Weather Day

Another lousy day for the outside world

Filled with whipping winds and driving rains

It’s too cold outside, for my liking

But in here it toasty

I brew some fresh coffee

Strong, Cuban style

Something to get the blood moving

Shake off the cobwebs, and the gloom of the day

With a fresh cup in hand I sit down to write

I find, however

I do better just staring out the window

Feeling a bit smug

At all my creature comforts

I don’t need all of this

I would survive outside, alone

Even on a day like today

However, I enjoy my spoils

I want to call a friend over and share all this

But I can’t decide who I’d like to share this with

This lucky and perfect day

So instead of that call

I continue to gaze fixedly and intently

Out the window, at the driving rains

And this bad weather day
