Unexpected fall

Snowlight illuminates the bedroom.

Open the window, let the cold air
Flow fresh and viscous, shouldering aside
Limp curtains.

Inflame nose and lungs with purity and ice.

Breathe. Sculpt statues in still air.
Savour crystalline delicacies.

Be a child in wonder for a while.

(c) A McN

Weather's unpredictability and constant inconstancy is one of the most exciting aspects of living in Britain. Does that imply the rest of British life is commensurately dull? Judge for yourselves.
