Cold I

something different today -
the sun scalds early as it
has done these many weeks, but
the breeze is cold off the
mountain, and it is restless.  In
shade one needs extra layers -
it seems a reminder that
weather does not stand still, that
more cold is coming, that
change is coming
and the hot plush days
don't last forever.
