“The days are short,
The sun a spark
Hung thin between
The dark and dark.
Fat snowy footsteps
Track the floor,
And parkas pile up
Near the door.”
No wait a minute. That’s not January in South Alabama. It’s probably, I don’t know…hot outside. My Weather Channel app on my phone reads: 70 degrees and Sunny at 10am.
The short days? Sorry bud, they’re getting longer.
So throw out those parkas; you don’t need them.
Stop dreaming of snow; the beach awaits.
Kick off your shoes; go barefoot.
And get outside to enjoy January.
It may not last.
