january needs

 

by january my
needs are quite
simply whittled down
clear and focused
very easily defined

warm feet
warm toes
warm hands
warm fingers
warm nose

no hats
no gloves
no mittens
no scarves
no jackets

tee shirts
bermuda shorts
flop flops
swim trunks
hawaiian shirts

warm winds
gently rains
long days
short nights
open windows

sandy toes
palms swaying
outdoors meals
turquoise waters
soothing waves

all very basic
perfectly straight forward
unwavering in absolute
unflinching in clarity
are my january needs
