"The secret of happiness is low expectations." 
in Unsheltered, by Barbara Kingsolver. Chapter 17


Today I allow myself to say
it's too cold to go outside.

Instead, I watch the sky
through my window,

imagine the knife blade breeze
that stirs winter-bare branches,

and lie like a cat with the patch of sun
moving slowly across me; time measured in warmth.
