bringing shivers up my spine.
The cold feels good-
it makes me feel alive, precious and beautiful.
The air is crisp, and I am under an electric blanket-
warm and toasty.
Waiting for the Man-
I call Lover, Husband and Best Friend,
to come home from a work outing.
He went with others from his work
to see the Detroit Tigers play.
Tomorrow he will have his
So Tomorrow I will bake him a cake,
while his mother hovers over me.
Then there will be gifts and laughter.
Right now is mere suspense.
I shiver in anticipation, as I wait,
for my Man to come home and wrap me up
into cuddling arms.
I know I will sleep good tonight,
despite shivers up my spine.
