This morning unfurling itself

I have awoken surly.

The low clouds match my mood

The sky is surly, too.


Inside the house,

the Christmas mess mocks

in its surly aftermath.


The snow plow

dragging itself through the city

scrapes with surly determination.


My surly swirl of grumpiness

has me in good company,

it seems.

    My surlometer is registering in the benign range, but can go to Danger at any time. 🙂

    You are right – it’s definitely post-holiday drop. Other bloggers are in the same space…

    Ah, the days after all the festivities… there’s a lot of cleaning up to do!

  4. The overload, then the crash.

    • Which would make sense if I’d overloaded, but it was essentially an ordinary day for us, aside from dinner at my mom’s. That’s only vaguely ‘unordinary.’ Perhaps it’s just the hype? Or the emotional thing? I don’t know.

    The season around here is just fine, if you care for shades of gray.
