As January Ends

Bright and white like a winter-time postcard
Across the way, a chimney is puffing out a stream of smoke
People are snuggled, hiding from the cold
Some are daring the ice, daring to move on with their lives
We become a cliché of coffee and hot cocoa
We find those books we never read and read them
We put on our warmest socks and gaze out the windows
"When will it melt away?" we ask
It seems as if not for some time
It's no longer fluff; ice and crunch
Enjoy it while you can, be thankful for your chimneys
This won't come again so soon

    Reminds me of the song "Factory Fires" by Josh Pyke.
    Beautiful words, thanks for sharing Jen!
