Hint Of Humidity

I zipped my zipper
in a cold Spring wind
(I’m sure you understand why).

Nature doesn’t have call waiting, or
a button to place on hold.

I checked for tracks
on the landscape of my legs,
no trace of the legacy of age.

Is this your birthday poem?
Liked these lines "nature doesn't have call waiting...or "hold"
and the entire 3rd stanza.

I've missed your gifted writing.

passing through, the journey longer each time, pleased with the pit stop of your words, a welcome rest spot and one I should halt at more often.
