A January Morning

cloudless blue

of a January morning

 

no wind
no snow
just frank & honest cold

 

there's an affability
to this weather

 

the chill in the air
is a firm handshake
almost too strong
but comforting

 

I appreciate
the winter day's
forthrightness
its open candour
about itself

 

I love
the generosity
of the sun
whose light
is lavish
& glorious

 

useless
but essential
as the best
works of art

A fine companion piece to "A January Night."

You've taken January from an abstraction to something, someone, concrete, someone we're happy to greet.
