Winter Night

The glow cast by the fireplace

Filled the room with warmth

The wood crackled

And the lively flames curled and swayed playfully

Shadows danced on the wall this way and that

In this perfect setting

They were warmly ensconced in blankets

Sipping hot cocoa

When a voice called out to them

Loath to leave the warmth and brave the chill

They looked at each other

And suppressing giggles shouted in unison

“Mom, we are asleep!”

  1. Such a warm and comfortable moment captured with poetic poise so vivid, I could place myself in that room. Sounds like the perfect winter night. πŸ™‚
