'A sense of humour lends you poise, it gives you balance and it helps you to bend without breaking'

(HH Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda)

Menolyrical; misty musings

Today, the rooves are all to see
which is something.
On Christmas Eve and next three
not even these, no, nothing.
The haar was thick, the air was still
the mildness did bring
calming thoughts, cheating thoughts,
of the possibility of spring.
Fraudster climate!

Bright days came then but
so did the frost.
Biting, hard, dry, crisp and
peeking buds were lost.
More fool them, being caught in hope
of flowering time!
They know not the names of seasons
only the feel of the clime.
Cheated beauty!

Thus, today here is the scene
from a window,
a place of land and sea and hills 
and clouds so low.
Again no wind to blow them free
of the Bonny Land
or the water of Clyde and the 
shores without sand.
End of the Earth!

  1. There is a misty look in the northern hemi which I found different when there, I am more at home with our harsh and bright light.

  2. Wow...87 x wow...I love your poem, misty musing!! It doe so match the photo.

  3. Lovely lyrical meteorological musings.
    But we're guessing it won't be long before the wind starts huffing and puffing again...

  4. Misty is wondering how you knew her musings:) Very nice poem.

  5. The Rooves at the End of the Earth
    know they will not end looking at seasons
    and the hopes they make rise.

  6. I do love that phrase "fraudster climate!" There seems to be no world at all beyond those roof tops.

  7. Having seen your fleeting view, enjoy it while you can!

  8. Lovely poem to go with the picture!
