Stone-cold sun, scruffy clouds,
ghost of snow not falling down,
rain falling upside down.
Relentless cool draft
full of rain swept all day long.
Spring was an illusion.
Raindrops didn’t reach the ground.
Sun shines. Cold wind brushed but ceased.
The air is full of spring.
Morning mist wears thin,
ghostly vapour lingers
in the winter dawn.
Shivers shoot up bare skin
when a gust of cold wind blows
in the moonless winter night.
