.solitary.

notice my neighbour is using coal 

as well as logs now

this is a new turn for him

a break in the routine

i use nugget things besides

the kiln dried things which

burn up bright for flame

during the day I let it glow softly

later

while relaxing let it flare nicely

for comfort 

it is not cold yet 

with so much time at home

is nice to have the stove lit

music

fruit

and a thriller or some more

sometimes we read

and sometimes  we just sit

to look out the window

out at the mountain
