First Snow

First snow of winter,
mixed with sleet and hail, settles
lightly on the ground.


I hang the washing in the sun
then watch as angry black clouds come.
Soon there’s hail mixed in with rain;
I fetch the washing in again!

Cat Flap

Grey skies, rain and hail stones
and at the window one wet cat
pleads with her eyes to be let in,
too lazy to use the cat flap.
