“hot water”

heated water, i’ve deemed priceless,

shower, tea, oatmeal, and steam,

rising up off the lake,

and over the concrete bridge

i cross on my long commute,

during which i try to decide,

what things are truly valuable;

hot water,

  1. Yeah, cold showers are definitely no fun, and cold coffee is terrible. Good pictures! Haven’t seen much of your shutter work for a while. 🙂
