Thinks & Inks

Weather's Indecisiveness

The weather pondered, 

Wondering what it would do today.

Deciding on winter

(Since it is January) 

It had snow fall,

Elegant snow flakes, 

Each one intricately designed 

To fall from the sky,

The joy of children 

With eyes wide and mouths open 

Waiting to feel the coldness on their tongues 

But,

Oh dear,

Hmm, no… 

The weather did not like this either. 

It wanted to do something 

Different, 

Snow was fun 

But soon it became

Slush, 

Grey and clumpy,

The salt from the roads 

Creating a film on the human’s cars.

So, 

The weather thought, 

It would make spring come 

Three months early.

The air warmed,

The snow all melted

Within a few days 

And within the week,

Rain was falling,

Giving life to the frozen streams,

Unthawing them from their icy tombs

As they now babbled and trickled happily.

We experienced both 

Winter 

And 

Spring 

Because the weather could not 

Make up its mind 

On what season it liked best. 

So, 

It did both.
