though the calendar says it's so.
Balmy night air heavy on my skin
sunny faces rise from sleeping earth.
Pesky gnats dance like fairies.
I walk between the raindrops for nigh on a week.
Too hot for my liking.
Oh to have a blanket of white
to tuck mother in for her long night's sleep
as I delight in the sparkle of December's Snow.
Next year perhaps.
