Kim Nelson: Cozy

A window pane, frosted with ice,

holds back the ravenous wind.

The same slim silica glass

keeps coziness in.

The soft light melts

into darkness beyond

the ambitious stretch

of a single candle.

In the corner,

a dog sleeps, curled

into a cinnamon twist knot.

She sighs and wraps her fluffy tail

over her tawny face,

like sled dogs do to

keep their noses warm

as they sleep on the tundra

under a white Arctic moon.
