FIRST THIRTY-TWO DEGREE NIGHT


Forty one degrees
At two thirty
Flowers not frozen yet

Thirty two degrees
At six in the morning
Light rain ans snow mixed

Fifty three degrees
At five this evening
Prediction of latest

Sixty eight degrees
At overcast day
Clouds take and owe you one

One hundred eighty degrees
At bedtime lay
Pen and paper ninety degree angle

Fact and angels cold
Fantasy and angels hot
Colors melt from heat

Reality of time and work
Morning evening night
Light fades a minute longer

Seek sixty degree nights
Ninety degree days
Moon and sun kissing in passing

Degrees of temperature and temperament
Degrees of light and darkness
Degrees of flowers' colors

Down to all saints eve
Down to American Thanksgiving
Down to almost Christmas

Winter solstice saves
Light grows in minutes
Buildup for rebirth

Dying into Fall
Into dark depths of water
Caves of regeneration

Falling points of time
Each twenty breaths of glow
In degrees all the life

They come and go...
