Future Weather

Whether it was

the 8th of October

9th of November

10th of December

doesn’t matter ~

memory’s disassembler ~

just the present precipitation

from all that happened

The salt that seasons our seconds

cinnamon minutes

sweet & sour hours

plus the + vibes

of grateful gifts ~

echoes of expressions

Ripples of thrown stone actions

& the fruit of our most

persistent thoughts

To this I give a special place

since it chides my face

with freezing rain

or kisses my cheek

with windblown dandelion seeds ~

all the things I will

or won’t ever do again

Any weather

will not last

but can still stick to my skin

with the chill of frequent stings ~
I will watch

what I make of my mind

Mind myself at all times

& make sure I make

a sugared future now

with the most golden

thoughts words deeds

to sweeten the polluted air

that surrounds us here

on the crowded stage of Earth
