Fear of Weather
Outside sky is a watercolor of warm grey,
Rain so fine it floats sideways.
You, outside, means wetness and curlier hair.
Drops float up under broad hat brims
And wrap your legs, face, ears, and hands.
Wetness, and news says
Danger of flood is up north;
Electrical outage likely,
And I see the clock stopped sometime.
California warns of winter storm;
Minneapolis laughs. But wait!
Landslides slow down city folks…
