cloudy days

6 Feb

cloudy days are good for pancakes

filled with blueberries

soft and hot to the tongue

cloudy days are for endless cups of coffee

lest we drift away into the past

never to be seen again

cloudy days are suited for colds

a stopped up, runny nose

puffy eyes and a tiny touch of fever

cloudy days are for staying at home

with the cat’s paws pressing against your arm

as you lie down and cannot sleep

because cloudy days are for memories

a kind of happy sadness

cleansing the sky of all the regrets

from a sunnier time
