Morning Frost

by joetwo

Early in the morning
Not too early though, weekend and all
Dog starts whining in demand
I look out the window
I am greeted by a white blanket
Not too thick, a smattering of frost
Dusting of ice
But enough to tell me it is going to be cold
Going to be unpleasant
The whine goes up in pitch
The urgency of a full bladder
Forcing me to realise
That even in a day such as this
No matter the conditions
I still have my obligations
So I get up
The daily duty to perform
