From the book published in 2021, And Don’t Come Back.
With You Home Safe
Late at night
in the warm house
one lamp lit
one person awake.
freezes on the window glass
in teardrop beads.
that knocks at the door
warm in a green wool glove.

Lovely, Claudia. Merry Christmas!
Thank you. Best wishes to you for 2022. As for the poem I think winter is when home is at its most important and a cozy safe home in all ways is something I feel a lot of gratitude for.
There is such warmth and joy in this poem.
Thank you. Home and family and friends are everything to me and I hope to create this feeling for them and also, I experience it myself and I am grateful.
