snow and mermaids

A snow day here but elsewhere - dark currents, aqua streaks, mermaids making their way along the rind of a somewhere coast. Large flat leaves bed to a squiggle of lizards, sun hot on stone paths, full cotton skirts careless over tanned legs, oranges and limes, yellows. Yup, it's late February and it's snowing and I am getting my late winter stircrazy, craving sun and heat and green leaves and something outdoors, open sky, breathing space.
