SHIFTING WINDS
(2/20/18)

leaving
the house
at 6am
I was greeted
by unseasonably
warm air
for February

70 degrees

by 10am
it was 45
with a stiff
breeze
from the north

now
as I prepare
to head home
for the day
we're at
the freezing
mark

with a
blustery
Arctic blast

a wind chill
approaching
the teens

rain
turning
to sleet

snow

"a wintry
mix"
as they so
euphemistically
phrase

I observe

no reason
to complain

life
on the plains
lends itself
to such
varying
daily
extremes

whether
they be
weather

moods

perspectives

we adjust
with each
passing front

no matter
the temperature

each climate
has its fans

a smile

a frown

can always
be found
