Monday, January 9, 2012


it is the ninth day
of the new year
and unseasonably warm
for january.

...comparatively, though,
it's not that much cooler
than the climate we just
visited--a little over a week
ago, we found ourselves
there on the edge of the sea,

exploring in the warmth and
sunlight.  now, up here
on the shores of lake
michigan (a different kind
of coast), we bask in the

strangeness of spring-like
temperatures and wait
for winter, knowing it
will arrive one way or

another, whether we're
ready or not.
