Changing Jackets

My arms slide through the sleeves

of a light weight jacket of sorrow.

Its length shorter

than the yesterday’s

long heavy trench coat.


Spring sings outside my window.

I purposefully turn my ear

towards its sweetness,

straining to hear each measure of notes

knowing its lyrics have the strength

to warm my heart—
so I can take the jacket off.

Winter's heavy coat cast off and replaced with spring's jacket.  Very nice.

Your inbox is full hun. =))


No Cari, the books are not on Amazon. If you want any of the books, (there are several but only 2 with my work in it so far) then I would have to collect the money from you and mail them to you. Let me know.


The 20th Anthology has 11 of my pieces in it. (one is a short story) The other book is a collection of the group's eight monthly writing challenges of which I contributed 4.

It sounds like you are well on your way...sorrow will soon be cast aside like a coat when not needed.       Nice~ 


Happy Spring girlfriend! *hugz*

Take it off, take it Alllllllllll off! lol, just kidding, the metaphor was great in this, and I think many people have Seasonal Affective Disorder through out the winter months. Makes every spring, a great one!
Nice job Cari..

This is a great little poem. Sadness leaves with the dreary winter.

Its pretty much that way with me every Spring.
