On a rainy night desire,

hot clothes and towels are taken from the dryer

The cold weather can be uncomfortable,

Yet, the Sun and fire play a part in getting comfortable.

Winter activities and weather-hungry pangs.

vendor cabins with hot soup gangs

Hearty soup feeds the body.

No need for a whisky toddy.

Food feeds the body and soul

assuring the mind and body are in control.

Comfort can't be itemized,

but with hot cacao, one can be vitalized

When headaches and stomach pains cause discomfort.

a hot water bottle or heating pad supplies much-needed comfort.

Receiving comfort from sunbathing,

stresses and worries are fading.

With heat from the fire,

one can retire.

Relax and sleep.

Wellness comfort reap.
