The day is grey:

the sky washes the earth.

Dogs curled in tight balls of fur

are not tempted to inspect the outdoors.

We light the fireplace,

watch water streaming down the windows,

we dream of spring

as autumn taunts.

    Lovely! We had rain literally smashing the windows today. Went puddle-jumping and umbrella-chasing with my brother. Now enjoying the peaceful side of fall. 🙂
