The weather inside my mind

brown leather jacket

when it’s cold because of the a/c


when hot

in my room

outside, always the sun

no snow

but in my mind

it rains and there is shade

and you are like a green lake

or a blue reservoir reflecting the clouds and the sky

on a still day and a stiller night

weather vane of my heart

you circle

and stop poised down south where I wait

for nothing , for love, for a forecast of a fair day

love that is like fire and quenches my thirst and yet makes it eternally thirst and burn
