Winter Sun

Winter Sun

I know, I know, it’s spring in Europe…but winter’s on the way in Australia.

This little slice of domestic gorgeousness works any time of year.


Winter Sun

Kylie van Dam


On a lazy Sunday in the sun,

The kitchen’s warm though outside

It is one degree.

Children and their gadgets,

All with headphones on,

Collecting points and giggling

At jokes not meant for me.

Pyjamas lounge and limbs poke out of blanket dens and pillow nests.

Their dad upstairs half hiding

In the pages of some sci-fi quest.

But here, right now, it’s just me.

Just me and my cup of tea

In the sun.
