August’s Augur

March 16, 2016

After the lunar new year,
Forty days and forty nights
Of winter finally surrenders
Our city, if only just a little.
There is a distinct pleasure
In driving in March with
The windows down, when
You can feel the change of
Seasons waiting in the wings.

Rains will come and go before
The sun returns to our corner
Of the world, but on days like
This one I can taste August’s
Sharp, eager rays. And I smile.
