this poem is not about the weather

 

it is a bright sun-shiny day   cool

even cold   in the shade

gloriously warm in the sun   others

 

like me   are having their lunch 

in the park  

i turn my face to the sun   heliotropically

 

i have always been that way  

a sun worshipper

my soul and my psyche cry   begin

 

to wither and cringe   without sunshine   to tread

intentionally

into dark shadows is to invite despair

A warm sunshine, especially during the wintertime, is a blessing. People in Kathmandu too become heliotropic during winter. Summertime is just the opposite. Nicely crafted, Jim. :)

Or vice versa. The direction of causality is difficult to ascertain.
