Jack’s huffs invade uncaulked cracks.
His heat-seeking wisps tickle my
uncovered cheeks and snake down to
bare ankles and slipper-froze tater-tot toes.
I, winter butterfly, weave evening’s cocoon.
Softest flannel sheets, under thin cotton
blankets, under a satin comforter
gleams warm under October’s moon.

Merril is today’s host of dVerse. Merril says:
Use blanket as a noun, adjective, or verb. Describe a blanket, real or imagined. Make a blanket statement. Be cozy, dark, sensual, or funny. Maybe you want to blanket us with sunshine or warmth or blanket us under snow. Your choice, as long as your poem is 44 words.
