Drying

Cold,
sunny, breezy.
Good drying day.
Washing on the whirly-gig,
dancing.

Clouds

A bright winter's day.
White clouds sweep briskly across
cold azure blue sky.

Cold

Cold
and crunchy
beneath my feet,
grass white-coated, icy.
Frost.

Blue-tits

Blue-tits flit quickly
back and forth to the feeders,
filling their little bodies
against the cold,
as the year slows down
for the long sleep of winter.

Late April

Much needed rain overnight
but today – so cold,
if it weren’t for the blossom
and new leaves on the trees
you might think autumn returned.

Inside

Winter
still bites,
cold outside today.
I’ll stay inside, keeping
warm.

We did go out for a bike ride this morning, on the tandem, but it was cold. I haven’t felt warm since we got back – not until I put on an extra layer of clothing! The sun came through for a brief visit but with no warmth in it. We are forecast a cold week; Spring is in a slight retreat despite more blossom and daffodils in evidence.

Biting Back

Winter
bites back.
No sun today,
sky overcast and grey.
Cold.

After Morning Rain

Cycling in the afternoon,
after morning rain,
under clear, cold skies,
we pass a field of languid cows
who slowly turn their heads
to follow us
with their mournful gaze.

Another Day

A cold, drying wind.
Another day without rain.
I water the plants.

Foretold

Not so cold
as forecasters foretold,
but cool enough
to nip fingers and toes!
