this is the time of winter
we'll take the sun

any way we can get it.
even as it falls

in random splashes,
followed by short spells of rain.

and then clouds close up
waiting to take

another pinch from the can
and spit some sun out again.

Sounds like spring, when weather changes quickly. I like "spit some sun..." sort of like tobacco. A charming poem. Peace, from Kathy Kopp
