Today, snowflakes have been landing softly,
sprinkling their icing sugar frosting
on black rooftops,
getting tangled in eyelashes,
covering every crevice,
blocking out sounds,
quenching the smell of the soil.

Inside, the softness lands, too. 
The quiet of a Saturday.
Actually hearing the coffee brewing in the kitchen,
water rushing from the tap,
the abrupt rustling of sheets,
as they're changed for crisp, fresh ones.
Feelgood music,
the persistent creak of that one loose floorboard
in the hallway
under bare feet. 

Weekend sounds,
January feel.
A white, cold, long month,
but with a subdued lull.
A little trip on the horizon,
intriguing projects in the pipeline,
babies about to be born,
granny reaching a grand one hundred. 
Loose ends, too,
but without stealing the limelight 
from the gratitude that rises to the surface 
for life & its surprises,
the natural pace of things
that goes unforced.

Weekend sounds,
January lull.

Lovely words and images. Grateful for both on this January Saturday.

Lovely to see you here Anci dear.
It's true that there's something slower going on over on blogs,
where you can get under the skin a little deeper...
And so many possibilities
with words & stills,
moving images & music...
Take care, x
