"Chance of Rain"
The weather said “chance of rain”
I packed my umbrella and put on my sneakers
I was tired of my old winter boots
It is spring now, although still March.
I stepped outside into a snowstorm
and reached back in the door for my winter hat.
It is just getting light out as I reach my car
I take my camera out for a photograph.
Past the lake and up the hill it is still snowing.
In the center of town it is a blur of white.
I come down the other side
by the time I reach the bottom
the snow is only a memory.
Not a flake to be found anywhere.
I take off my hat finally and unzip my coat.
I step out of my car under a gray sky and continue on my way.
