Stationary front

Maybe I have a new vocation as a barometer.  I could sell my services to the weather map people.  Still, I*m not sure there*s a lot of call for human barometers when other instruments are so much more scientific.  Yesterday the stationary front kept me at home.  While sitting at home, a job possibility plopped in my lap.  Perhaps it was on the leading/trailing edge of the stationary front.  Today is clear.  Time to pursue new things.

Yesterday the stationary front
Moved back and forth
Back and forth.
The weather could not
Make up its mind:
Cold or warm,
Sun or rain.
The front
Moved back and forth,
Back and forth.
The stationary front
Of my brain
Moved with it:
Back and forth,
Back and forth.
By day*s end
I finally saw the world
Straight on.
The front finally
Moved east.


  1. All the best to you, Catharine - sounds like new thing are on the horizon. I really enjoy the way you fuse your prose life reflections with your lovely poetry.

  2. I do too! Clear and at the same time, intriguing!
