14 April – Chameleon

April’s putting on her very best show,
swapping sudden showers for full blown snow,
confusing us all with her chameleon weather
that alternates sunshine with thick falling feathers.
No one knows what to wear or whether to make any plans
as April pranks on, knowing she’s got the upper hand.
The flakes she dances down are the fattest I’ve ever seen,
bringing waffles to mind, and rich, fresh cream.
I stand baffled by the window and watch her change and shift,
held captive to the spinning power of sun, drift, sun, snow drift.
