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
its open candour
about itself


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


but essential
as the best
works of art

Agreed! Well said.

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.
