Hattiesburg Winter

Hattiesburg Winter –
•    A couple of days in December
•    A week or so in January
•    A fortnight in February
•    A day or so in March

But this year –
•    Fireplace weather for Thanksgiving
•    Back of the closet searches for heavy coats and gloves
•    School closures for an inch of sleet and ice – no beautiful snow
•    Unrelenting miserable gray skies, drizzle, wind
•    December, January, February
•    On and on and on

•    Out the window
•    Through the gray mist
•    Against the dead browns
•    A tiny spot of yellow
•    Could it be?
•    In the midst of the drab
•    One droopy daffodil

Slight, but welcome, suggestion of spring
