February 19th

I finally feel
skin warming
from
the sun.

I smell
soft spring air
like warm ice,
if that were possible.

I see
children playing,
people cleaning,
owners walking their dogs.

I hear
laughter
and birds
and sweet summer-like sounds.

I taste
mild resentment
feet hurting
energy like a burner on low.

Yet I fully enjoy
the breeze
blowing throughout
the house.
