River of stones – first stone on the tenth day

I found yet another webby writing event – the “River of Stones”. The idea here is to write your observation of something, anything, each day of January, with as much clarity and precision as needed. Here goes –

Night, Early in Epiphany
The street’s so dark now that the Christmas lights
Are taken down, or if still up turned off.
Across the street, one house is still aglow.

Just one. The others wait until next year.
It’s dark; my pinky fingers feel so cold.
