Change of Heart.



We said we'd meet beneath the clock!
(But my desire was fleeting!)
So now I lurk behind the blinds,
Avoiding an awful meeting!


Oh the delight of frisky weather,
Rain and sunshine both together.
Clouds that scud and winds that skitter,
Sometimes warm and sometimes bitter!
Shades of green that flash and flow,
Dark, then light, then off they go!
Shadows going separate ways
Joined then parted as we gaze.
Hair that flies in all directions!
Fields divided in patchwork sections.
Little flurries of misty rain.
They dampen, then they're gone again!
Trees that widdershin and creak.
Words that fly before we speak!
Laughter as we brave the breeze.
How I loved days such as these.
England is a place of treasures;
Quirky little gems and pleasures.
One of them is frisky weather.
Rain and sunshine both together.

Great one for the day as always, Brenda! This pic wasn't the easiest to come up with something for, but it might have just been the gray doldrums of our mid winter BLAHS!! Hope you have a great week!

Sometimes when the blush is off the rose it's best not to meet again.
Perfect romantice touch.
Loved it!

Aw, she's breakin' his heart, standin' him up. But now he can write a country-western song about it called, "Rejected Again."

I love your "Frisky Fantasy" weather poem. I lived in Ireland one year back in the day and the weather was just like that.

Very nice take you have on this ยต-fiction prompt.

The waiting game is always a bad game. It's more terrible when you are waiting for nothing. Poor guy.
