Outlook For The Day

Morning slipped out of the dark.
Definitely there, but more out of obligation
than enthusiastic about performing its daily chore.

Noon, always a brief moment, seems to be
lining up with the same overcast attitude.

I’m sure afternoon will be infected by its peers,
a disposition more related to night than day.

Normally, I love gray days like these. But with no nicotine, I've found I've really needed sunshine this week. Come back, sunshine!

Oh, you need some sunshine BADLY!

I would send you some, but it's out of stock here also...
This is such an adorable poem--
makes me smile even in the gloom!

(My daughter"s boyfriend from Seattle says they don't see the sun there ALL WINTER--
I would curl up and die!

Brilliant! I especially like:

"Noon, always a brief moment..."

It's the same here -- I've forgotten what the sun looks like.

Do I sense rain in your part of the world? Or maybe just grey skies?

Thanks Margie!!

Janedoughnut, quitting smoling is one of the hardest things I've ever done, but it is worth it!! Stick with it.

Thank you Kai!!

Vivien, I lived in Ohio for 3 years. No sun in the Winter. It was horrible!!! If I get any I'll put it in a mason jar and send you some.

WOW, thanks Vaughn!! Not a word I hear associated with me very often.

Andrew, as best I recall it is big round and yellow and makes the attitude meter shoot skyward!!

Corey, some of both. And, tonight we get cold!!!

Thanks Floots!!

Spirited showers tonight will be snow. Say no!!

Don, yours had a few more layers in it than mine. Thank you for the comparison!!

Cathy, it is the time of year. But, it doesn't mean we have to like it.

Sage, I'm not a fan of your part of the world in winter. Gots to have sunshine sometime.

Dsnake, then it sounds like an overcast world. Wonder what that could mean??

Thanks Magiceye!!

Nina, you make an excellent point!!

Ann, it sounds like I could be writing anywhere in the world. Gray skies for everybody!!
