The Temperature of our Time - Feb. 5, 2022

climate change is really happening

everyone is running hot and cold

some toss anger at shadows

or are caught in a deluge

of despair from a blue sky

or insulted by a cold wind

on a pleasant day


kindness

the summers

we used to have

winter weather now far more

dangerous inside than out

the fall from grace

more predictable than ever


there’s one season though - spring

where hope is still planted

watered with prayers

and coddled by hearts

who know that one chance

in hell might be more likely

than any heavenly miracle
