Outside

A lovely warm spring day.
I’m off outside
without my coat today!

Teasing

Today is cooler than expected.
I go out without a coat,
tell myself;
walk briskly, stay in the sun.
Clouds float by, teasing –
oh no you won’t!

Without

No coat.
Today I went out
without!

Eclipse

David's EclipseA cold spring morning
sitting in the garden,
wearing coat and gloves,
watching the moon pass over the sun
through double thickness black glass.

Thick Coat

Hooray, I’m back. Sorry for my brief absence but I couldn’t access my blog admin for some unknown reason which seems now to have rectified itself. Here is the first of the missing posts:

Cold start, thick coat,
clouds clear, sun comes,
too hot.

Mizzle and Drizzle

Mizzle and drizzle,
not one thing nor t’other,
coat on to go to the shop.
But the rain it got lighter,
the day became brighter
and the coat became damnably hot!
