how to approach a year

dreared with rainfall’s constant companionship
and comrade to the squall of wind.

There’s always tomorrow.

bone clinging cold gathers at your feet
climbing your legs with ice picks.

There’s always tomorrow.

by the warm glowing promise
of the weather forecaster
smiling in his studio
and sheltered from my opinion.

There’s always tomorrow,
and we are yet to have snow.

  1. Another great use of words! This sure is the time of year to feel wintered and chilled and not at all certain about the warmth of Spring ever getting here. Blessings to you and yours.
