Silence rules us. We abide by its palm pressed tightly against our mouths. A breathtaking morning is felt, not laid out neatly like tarot cards, in handpicked cherry like sentences. A freshly laid tar road, ambushed by the autumn shedding is taken in, not talked of.
But a change of season is too tempting to let go of without at least once, half swinging, sneakily to the drum beats of the heralding song. Winter is here and the moon lingers, the sun behaves like a caffeine addict. It rises grumbling, slowly and by noon, with coffee in its system it rains down anxiety on my city. The winter sun stings, we scurry off to cold walls, in dug out sweaters.
