The desire was there,
sunshine-fueled momentum, high
blue skied exposed skin vitamin d.
We, the citizens of the north
peeled off layers, not quite
hot yet (just right) a
breezy whiff of pollen,
gleam of mercury, one
mote in the eye of
this summer-to-be.
We are avid weathergoers,
wanting, needing change
embracing the turn, amid
studious extrapolations
involving patterns
and jet streams, multitudes
of precipitation
as evidenced by outerwear.
We exist in this vernal moment,
squint into cloudless skies, feel
the prickle of sun rays, hear
robin song, see
the tug of worm from
the warming earth.
