rain and wind and branches scratching on the bedroom window. ragged clouds speeding past the waxing moon. kaleidoscope leaves decoupaged onto the pavement. puddles of orange light around every lamppost.
grey skies make the leaves even more vibrant in contrast.
to stave off a cold you need: two gull feathers and a day to yourself. a blanket nest. a new song on repeat. a book you’ve been looking forward to reading. (feel free to exchange these last two for, say, a doctor who marathon). tea. (i like to call this concoction my cold comfort. because that’s about the level my sense of humour is on).
