a sudden melancholia floods me –
holds me in a frostbite grip –
at the breakfast table as
i watch an inexplicable gust of wind
strip a blooming apple tree
of its last petals. my hand on the teapot
trembles.

when the clouds have darkened
to the deep koala gray
of my favorite jumper, it seems
such a comfort
to curl up in the rumbling presence
of the storm. this will give me time to fix
my umbrella.

Magnicent descriptions. Everything is very visual. Even the colors you choose. By the way, I love your username; so creative. But I must ask, is there any truth to it? Are you Hemingway's love child? ^U^
