    winter at last
    singing in church
    with snowflakes
    in my hair

    for Elin Borgh, born in Sweden

    I just loved those white clouds. As it's getting to be old fashioned proper British winter this week I'll remember these white clouds.

    oozing sap
    yellow-orange fat lighter
    fuels my flames--
    in drenching rain

    I guess I'm the only one who finds "white clouds" too pretty here.
