Weather Wise. – Fay Slimm

From murky 
overcast sky
rife with heavily 
laden cold
comes out of nowhere 
brightness.

The warm sun’s face 
pushes holes
through 
to reveal cornflower blue
circles of bloom, 
bouqueting
the day

Smiles begin 
undoing furrowed brows 
and start 
breaking frowns in two, 
increasingly.

From nowhere folk want 
to hello
and tension 
shows a release.

Murky weather moods 
have to go. 

Sleepy Weather – Smoky Hoss

My dog lay asleep by the window
lost in dreams of drizzle, 
I pat her head
and watch the rain descend.

Cold November blows
October forever away, 
and here am I, a melancholy warm
sitting with my faithful old friend.

The wind wails
a mournful tune, 
a song sung sad
when the sky comes weeping.

The fireplace aglow
holds the heart at home, 
as simply contented
I and my old dog, together, lay sleeping. 

Under The Weather – Kyle Jones

The first dark day of summer came sooner than I had hoped, 
I took one look at it and just looked back at me
‘You’re a total wreck’ it said
‘Wearing a jacket in this overheated hell hole’

‘You turned me on in winter’ I replied

I walked away from it soon after
‘Haven’t I gone blind yet I wonder’ aloud
but I don’t want to see out of my eyes anymore…
Just staring Inside my own soul 

Seeing how terrified I’ve become
Now I’ve got this sick feeling inside
Whenever it rains, and when it doesn’t

The perfect end to a perfect life
But, with nothing on the horizon
I forget about what’s above
and All I can think about is what I’m under, 
The only thing that ever makes any more sense
