Next in the Series of Poems About the Winter of 2006 (Though Spring is Increasingly Apparent)

February 8, 2006
Last night it was suddenly Spring

Just like that
like going over a bump in the road
abruptly almost uncannily
balmy and warm and still
the sky lovely and bluish purple and
though I’d left the office quite late
staying light all the way home

It will go away again I know
but once it’s been here
however briefly
it’s never quite the same winter again

Then when I walked in the door
I caught the scents of
cooking garlic and laundry soap
perhaps the two smells I associate most in the world
with home
