February Days

February Days

A gray day

Gale force winds blowing the trees

Barren limbs at mid-winter

Highlighting the grayness

Of a bleak February day

In retreat

Squirrels scamper across branches

Looking for shelter from the wind

A safe haven from the storm

Another manifestation

Fanciful forecasts

Fluctuating with each broadcast

Predictions of more to come

Horizons filled with dreary days

Awaiting reprieve
