Startling Weather - Poem by Ellie Daphne van Stralen

I put the kettle on
for a fresh cup of coffee

the February-world outside
shows colorful warmth
lit by the glorious sun
daytime silence rules

down on the nail
air whistles around the house
wind chases clouds
cold air creeps
through smallest cracks

overnight
the sun doesn't shine
daylight disappears
bluest sky vanishes
in no time

a black and gray blanket
covers the world
enabled lights
illuminate
my coffee-break

a different ambiance
coated with rain and hail
while winter taps
on temporary opaque glazing

still holding
my fresh hot coffee
in my hand
not even a sip drunk
I already have to get up
to turn the light out

the sun returns
glorious warm light
falls down
from a blue sky
large hailstones
melt
like snow in summer

an inviting view
through a clear window
yearns
for a walk outside
my hot coffee left behind
I need to go outside
watch today's weather unwind
