advent journal: this particular tuesday

this particular tuesday

it snowed all day
but nothing stuck
is a good description
of this particular tuesday
afternoon or so I thought
until I realized it was
wednesday and as I
turned to make my way
back home I wondered
why fogelberg could sing
about the snow turning
into rain and make it
worthy of a saxophone
the difference between
a snow globe and a muddy
mess is just a few degrees
tonight the rain turned
back to snow still
without a saxophone
I made dinner out of
what was in the fridge
neither will last
past the morning
(thursday morning
I remind myself)
without needing to
demand any more of
the weather than
what it had to offer
on this particular
wednesday

Peace,
Milton
