A Mix

After the Fog,
Warming Temperatures,
and Hail
of the last few days,
the Sun came out on Sunday.
It was so beautiful.
We were gleeful.
We hardly recognized
that Golden Ball and soft Blue in the Sky.
We walked the Loop
on that soft Wet Ground.
The Winds came
and the Clouds raced.
Temperatures plummeted.
Horizontal Snow returned.
Mike brought
a Truckload of Wood
for the Wood Stove.
That should take care
of us for the year.
The Chickens stayed inside.
Mostly the Humans
and the 4 Leggeds
did too,
except for Chores
and Richard's walk.
Sounds have changed.
The Wind roars outside
while we are snug inside.
Snow crunches under feet.
That reminds me
of North Dakota.
