in 1 day

it isn’t in today’s rhyme
it was yesterday’s reason

for being isn’t enough

in 1 day
the season changed
though everything
appears the same
an attitude adjustment

leaving cold
in the fireplace to warm
stripping a layer off
as the snow melts
from the lawn
a tiny burst of life
breaks through
and icicles hang no more

the warm
never left the core
merely waiting
for windows to open
smelling the salt
in the breeze
for another seasonal change
in 1 day

being is enough
if engaged
