Winter -
          gray sky, dark hills
          somber shadows lurking -
          Homespun colors on dull, drear days -
          then, snow!

          Damn Cat

          Cat sick
          between my toes -
          slide on my kitchen floor,
          crash land by sink, breaking dishes.
          Cat laughs.


          Hot! Hot!
          Oooh! Ow! Fried toes!
          Bitchin' beach, no shadows!
          Summer sun sizzling scorching sand...
          Ah! Sea!
