spare sky scarlet struck behind
save expect might caress pair first bit
My first thought this morning
upon discovering no water flowing
when I turned on the taps:
What did I expect upon hearing the forecast
of negative temperatures?
Why didn’t I follow through
when struck with the idea of leaving a faucet open,
dribbling water through the night?
Of course, looking behind
usually brings forward intelligent advice.
Next, running through my brain:
Frigid temperatures, radiating from the snow-filled sky,
freezing my water pipes,
spare my being stuck inside and developing ‘cabin fever’!
At least, a bit of logic
did caress my mind so that I filled five containers
with water, just in case.
How will I save water,
available only from containers filled last night,
hoping against hope that the pipes would not freeze?
Might I picture Lady Luck
warming the pipes enough so that water will yet begin to flow?
Should I delve more deeply into Fantasyland
and picture Lady Luck being wrapped in scarlet
and toting a pair of super-sized hair dryers
that could thaw my pipes?
