Warm Whiskey on Cold Nights by David Boski


winter is coming
as it does
every year.

seasonal depression
waits quietly in
the shadows
making it hard
to get out of bed in
the mornings
even on the rare occasion
the sun breaks through
the clouds.

as I think of all the time
that has passed
feeling empty inside
and
unsatisfied
with life’s results
thus far.

but Melvin needs
a walk.

so
get up
have
a cup of coffee
and
find happiness
in the moment.

warm whiskey
on cold nights
with him
by your side;
others have it
much
worse.
