    Finely observed and perfectly executed Jean.

    Wonderful haiku for drawing attention to these irregular seasons

    And as as a medical practitioner, I love the allusion to subtle symptoms of future illness.

    Dear Jean, Thank you. I remember looking out the window for days when in recovery from an illness. Your poem says so much.

    truly so blue
    trustworthy friends

    Blessings, Ellen

    I seemed to skip line 1 on first reading and and saw our changing planet, but then was pulled back up to it and zoomed right into the heartbeat. Very effective.
