in spite of


even though
the dark creeps in too early
and the chill seeps into my bones
even though
the rain ricochets off the roof
and melancholy sometimes invites itself in like an unwanted visitor
i am grateful
because I can
sit in patches of light blinking like a cat
and wrap myself in the warmest sweater
and i can
look out at the rain from a cozy window
and wrap the love of my family around me like a soft blanket

I am grateful too for blue elephant photography who, like me, also likes to sit and think.
