watching

Sunrise is a limited time offer.
Watching the light climb the grand staircase of clouds is exhilarating.
A blush of apricot.
A silvered jet stream.
Trees, darkly etched against the morning sky.

Cars pull out of driveways.
A seagull sails by on arched brow wings.
And in the distance, crows fill the sky like paper blowing in the wind.

A wavering line of geese, and another.
Somewhere, the world lies frozen in winter and somewhere else, the hot hand of summer touches all.
But here in January we try to cling to all the seasons.
At the same time.
We revel in the sunlight and boast of sweater days.
We dream of snow and fly our kites above the grassy fields.
