  1. The chill is back here after a warm and sunny spring weekend. It came in with the rain… I agree.I want warmth back.

    Love how you did this today!

  2. In like a lamb, out like a…well, Margaret Atwood has the last say like a latter day Dorothy Parker:

    [you fit into me]
    BY MARGARET ATWOOD
    you fit into me
    like a hook into an eye
    a fish hook
    an open eye

    AntispamiMarchHeartbreak: depict do.

    Ach aye,
    depict, do.
    and let the chalk
    last forever
    in the sodden,
    now cold
    March hardness.

  3. Haha, yes. A perfect poem for that wet March weather. I would rather have bitter cold than the wet rainy just-above-freezing weather of late winter. Here’s to a sweet and warm spring soon.
