October: A heat pump poem

4 Oct

The temperature

has been

Before too long

I will have to turn on

THE HEAT.

But not yet.

Bundled in socks

and a flannel shirt

I challenge myself:

one more day.

Monitoring the temperature

inside the house,

I think:

one more degree.

But this year is different.

August’s heat pump

brought AC

and will soon bring

Autumn’s heat.

Though I am not ready

to turn it on,

I sit here,

in socks and a flannel shirt,

awaiting the moment

when I

turn

on

the

HEAT.
