The Electric Palm Tree

I remember
The sound of snow falling on the water
With big fat flakes
Hitting the water

Standing by the lobster dock
Staring out to the southeast
On the slippery wooden planks
With absolutely no wind

The sound of only the snow hitting the water
Hit my senses
A soft and cruel caress
In languages unknown

Then I snapped to attention
And looked at what I saw
And what I had heard
And smiled

It's cold and it's getting colder!
Record low of 9 here in the windy city, Whiskey Taw Falls, that is!
Sounds like it was warm at the BOA meeting last night!

Time for a nice warming Barley Wine:)

Merry Christmas Everyone!
