under the weather



and it seemed to be a day
determined strictly
by the weather.
thick, gray clouds,
endless rain,
55 degrees.
after dragging myself
from one end of the city
to the other
from doctor
to visa pick-up
to bank, etc.
i impatiently awaited the moment
i could walk through
my front door,
get into dry clothes
and put my feet up.
coming home to find milla
actually under the weather
even warranted
such lassitude for all of us.
we read a book or two,
then did what happens
a few times a year
around here:
sat down behind a movie.
i caught a few zzzz's
to make up for
last night's insomnia
from 3:30-6:30 am,
then it was
scrambled eggs and fresh melon
for dinner.

better luck
overcoming tomorrow's
identical forecast.

I'm tired of these gray summer days too. Looking forward to some sun in the Mediterranean----maybe catching some mid day zzzzz's too. Sorry Milla's not feeling well. Hope she gets over it soon and is smiling again.
