where the writers are
The Nature of Humanity
Snowed by hopes of Spring

First light looms and delicate black paws approach

A single paw reaches the glass in a brief, half hearted attempt

Slippers pad along to an abrupt halt – taking it all in

Silent grumbling and the absence of purring

Meet hot bold coffee and a warm lap

Headlines awake a drowsy state

Moisture laden and heavy becomes the emotion of the day

Cold and weighty join sorrowful and sad

Unrelated events line up to points of wonder

Meteorological happenings cause devastation

While nature joins the cold reality of human violence
