The sun is a tease as it offers
occasional glimpses from behind
leaden skies that insist on frowning
hoping that with extra effort, they
could banish the approach of spring
and the heat of summer when
life is freed from the confines
of excessive layers of clothing.
A strong wind accentuates and drives
the spirit into hiding, sending
a frosty chill through walls and windows
into the pores to reach past muscle and bone
sending the naked in search of protective
layers of clothing, into hiding.
