The Next Installment in the Ongoing Poem Saga About the Spring of 2006

April 19, 2006
The second warm day in a row

Just walking from the building to lunch
was an actively enjoyable experience
The sun shining on my back
so that I could feel it
toastily soaking in
through my black sweater

As little as I usually like the heat
the sun’s warmth felt great
More like the way I enjoy a hot bath
or wrapping my hands around a mug of tea
or burying my face in laundry just out of the dryer
or holding a sheaf of papers freshly extruded from the printer
the lovely sensation of

localized warmth

rather than that
inescapable hot heat
the heat of hot weather
that I do not like
