It’s probably climate change,
Debatable to some.
climb to seventy –
a perfect number
but not for January
where plump raindrops
should be soothing
The sun fades into an inky sky.
The moon enters on cue.
On the hilltop, lights wink
as if to say hello.
The grill hisses,
while Chardonnay sips
allowing muscles to loosen,
thoughts to calm –

Beautiful, Lauren. I enjoyed the chardonnay and kisses part.
Thanks, John, and I’m glad you enjoyed the drink and romance. 😊
Sounds like climate change is not so bad after all. 🙂
Well, for this evening, it was all good. 🙂 But we are in a drought, so rain is needed, and hopefully will come later this week. Fingers crossed.
love the message and the pace of this is nicely done
Thanks so much, John! Have a great Monday!
I forgot that it’s Monday morning! Well done, Lauren. 🙂
Thanks, Mark! Have a good week!
Very warm winter here as well. But no Chardonnay.
Chardonnay was the icing on the cake. 🙂
Rain is supposed to come later this week. Hope so because we’re in a serious drought. Thanks for stopping by, Binky!
Great lines, Lauren – I can just picture this scene 🙂
