Car No Go

There are cruel winters, cruel summers……

You accept them as best you can

Bear them with disgruntled perseverance

Holding inside a small ache, an annoyance…….

Occasionally you yell at the weather……

A healthy madness, a mild mania…….

The day does not hear your voice…….

You shovel snow from sidewalks

Wipe the sweat from your brow

Waiting for temperate relief

A new climate of reason……

You even pray for the return

Of an older compassionate forecast…….

The meteorologist smiles at this…….

For now…….. you must

Blow heat into your hands

Hide inside your air conditioning……..

    Weather is a fickle thing isn’t it ! I have lived in places where on half of my house it was raining and the other it was complete sunshine!


  7. I can relate. We get snow from the beginning of November. I never complain about heat, no matter how hot or humid it gets.

    Is just me, or did anyone read a political meaning into this piece?


  13. You reminded me of a quote.-
    “In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.

    And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.”

    ― Albert Camus
