Comfort Zone

A sudden snow shower,
flakes fly past the panes.
We watch in silence,
mugs in hand; steam rising.
You turn on an old movie—
one seen a dozen times,
  maybe more…
we laugh in unison,
quoting favorite lines,
echoing off each other,
anticipating what comes next…
...as steam rises

  12. This is delicious in so many ways. Love how they work off each other because of their connection. The comfort of hot drinks on cold night and watching an old favorite movie. It's all that safe place of love and family.

  16. "anticipating what comes next…
    ...as steam rises" Tender, relaxed mood with a leisurely buildup to something more? Lovely.
