Spring Will Be Early This Year
My young friend in her late 50’s, is experiencing hot flashes.
I, on the other hand, in my 70’s am cold all the time;
often checking to see if I’m dead as sunlight passes.
This winter has been a very cold one.
We have to flip to see who controls the thermostat.
Warm, if I’m the winner—an evening well done and that’s that.
Loser, I have to wear hand warmers, two sweaters,
a 100% wool lap blanket and a hat.
Or, as previously noted
—she sits on the porch,
Oblivious of accelerating spring flowers.
