Contrast

In the evening like this
when the grey sky spreads melancholy
and the trees wave to me
moved by a cold wind,
I make a warm tea with sugar cubes
and sip it.
The walls around me
keep my home cozy and warm,
the light I put on
shines despite the darkness around
and looking  through the window
I breathe the dry air in
wondering
why do we need a contrast
to be grateful for what we have?
