more fun in the sun
much more happening outside
the weather’s balmy

as it should be too
it’s lighter than other times
meaning the dark times

the ones i don’t think about

much brighter and so
temperate i don’t wear socks
unless they make me

much less laundry now

than in wintertime
not only with socks but with
long sleeves and pants too

there’s really no choice

and coats and mittens
and a hat and scarf and more
just to leave the house

but not in the sun
rises early and sets late
and keeps us all warm.

  1. Pete, have you noticed how the days are growing shorter already? It’s the light I miss during the colder months. I’m happy to see I’m not the only one who writes poems about seasons and the weather. πŸ™‚

    • One of my favorite things to write about! I mean when it has some effect. Certainly best when it’s enjoyable! I’ve been staying outside lately from 8PM until the sun goes down to get the most of it. The best part of sunset is how long it really takes when you’re part of it.
