Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Picture belongs to Olive Tree @ Lost and Found, A Continuous Journey

she opens her eyes
to a blinding white blanket,
the wind’s soft purring

pulled by excitement
she steps outside, unprepared,
a jolt that beats ‘joe’


When In The Rain

amidst the cold drops,

a faint smile,

peeking from under the umbrella,

  a pleasant anticipation,

of what comes after

And the Forecast Today is…

5 lines Gogyohka challenge, day 2.

desiring toe nail painting but settling for umbrella instead

wanting to wear shorts but reaching for sweater instead

and where oh where are my gloves?

is it spring, summer, or fall?

oh, lost in forecast translation, again
