the lonely storm

there is a storm outside

the sky is bright and white

with snow swept by the winds

from roofs to the ground

it is nice watching the nature

as it evolves tonite

with tea at my hand

warming my hands and inside

as I sip it in

standing next to the window

looking at the street down

with my eyes relaxing

with the dance of the snow

I see a lady rushing

with short, quick steps

a red scarf around her face

carrying a shopping bag

the wind moving her coat

from side to side

I am thankful for being inside

it would not be fun otherwise

wishing those on the street

an immediate safe shelter

and something hot to drink

and a window somewhere

to see what I see

and say to someone nearby

look! how nice it is
