It's that time of year when the weather is all over the board. Some days in the 60's, some nights in the teens. In between is a rollercoaster of everything: sun, clouds, rain, snow, furious winds. Crazy!
I feel like I'm all over the board also. I can't concentrate. My mind flits from one thing to another, much like the weather. One morning I took our visiting canine out for a walk and it felt like a lovely spring day. By the time I headed home the wind had picked up, the temperature was dropping, clouds were rolling in and I found myself hurrying toward my front door. An event later that day spawned the first poem below.
I decided to try a poetic form I had not tried... the triolet. Here are two that crawled out of my pen. Once I put them on the same page they seemed to reflect the hot and cold duality of our weather as it zigzags its way toward spring.
It's Poetry Friday at The Miss Rumphius Effect . Thanks to Tricia for hosting, and for inviting us all to try a new poetic challenge next month. Find her challenge at the link above.
Stay warm, stay safe, and have a good one!
