Today

After intense heat
today it is bearable.
It might even rain!

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.

Lists

Writing a list of things
to buy at the store tomorrow;
something to cross off
my ‘to do’ list for today!

Silent

Today
I have nothing to say.
I sit in the garden;
the sun comes and goes
alternately warming and cooling,
while the birds sing
and my mind is silent.

Change

Yesterday?
Good day,
cycling in sunshine.
Today all change, rain,
snow.

Witness

Today the sun smiles
as if yesterday’s wind and rain
had never been.
Only puddles and soggy leaves
bear witness.

Today

I just
can’t be bothered
today.

Break Time

Just to let you know I am taking a break for a month, from today and all through November. I’ll be back in early December so don’t go too far away!

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!
