Another month, another season, another year gone!
Where did the time go?
I wrote a spur-of-the-moment haiku to celebrate the first of December. While it was sunny and a balmy eighty degrees last week, the weather since turned cold and overcast and I’m freezing. My creative writing professor should be happy that I can still turn out a passable 5-7-5.
On this gloomy day
Slate sky; the clouds heavily
Pregnant with iced rain.
Dr. Seuss wrote this about December, too…
“How did it get so late so soon?
It’s night before it’s afternoon.
December is here before it’s June.
My goodness how the time has flewn.
How did it get so late so soon?”
Joni Mitchell and The Circle Game, all about seasons. It’s definitely the mood of the day.
