One view from my back door. Mid way you can see the Union River lightly frozen and covered with the snow of the previous night.

Feeling really cold
Expected what ? Balmy temps?
It’s winter in Maine

.
Daughter’s birthday, sigh
Why does mother feel older?
Mother’s next to age

===========
.
Storms in Texas  bad
Rattle the pictures on walls
Thunder sonic booms
.
===========
.
Winter brings sad days
Darkness creeps in,  sun  hiding
Depression deepens
.
===========
.
There’s a name for it
Light  affectiveness disor-
der.   Heaven help me.
.
===========
.
First   you  stoop,
   then  you
droop.  Getting  old  is  chicken
poop.  Smile.  Life  goes  on.
