We are often surprised by the winter weather, which is slightly ridiculous as it IS winter. Perhaps we just love to talk about the weather.

Young noise, old ears
bright welcome in the cafe
storm rages outside
sea whipped up
to white fervour on grey

small fishing smack
struggling to reach safe harbour
she loses sight as it dips beneath the heavy seas
coffee and cake
rain drips off her hat
onto the polished table

young noise fades
as she tunes into the storm
suddenly she notices
light on the horizon
from the west
winter storm is passing
welcome light holds future promise
