February's Fate

February’s Fate

January’s cold breath
whispers an icy farewell
smirks amid the snowflake confetti
swirling in her passing.

February, dances gleefully
Punxsutawney Phil’s shadow 
darkens the edges of spring
defies the lie of lengthened days.

She is a spite filled wily vixen,
tawny temptress of the temperate
at odds with her frigid fate
shedding the hardened tears of Winter’s lust.

This was beautiful John. Where I live, February is the start of spring regardless of what the groundhog says. :)

Chris, here in the Northeast we know why there is an "RRRRR" in FebRRRRRuary ....it's the sound the wind makes when we say "BBRRRRRRRRRRR....."
