Winter Still Life

If viewed from the outside,
a winter still life:
That forgotten cup of tea.
A peeled clementine
segmented on the plate.
A colorful afghan
draped for added warmth.
An open book
weighing both eyes down.

Yet should you step inside,
the scene comes alive:
That cup of tea is steaming.
Music accompanies
the savoring of an orange.
Dust motes dance
in gusts of recycled air.
Rising off the page,
a separate world evolves.
