Sunny and cold in Florida

One more day, then it's back to Illinois.  I figure they*re lowering the temperature in Florida so it won*t be too much of a shock when we return.

I sampled the day.
It is sunny and cold.
Coffee and an orange,
Breakfast in the room
This morning.
I pretend the sun signals warmth.
I know different.
I sampled the day.
This is Florida.
This is also January.
I also know
It is still colder in Illinois.
Sunny and cold
For Florida.
The Florida folk bundle up in hats and gloves.
We practice picking them out
From their abundance
Of warm gear.
The rest of us pretend
We don*t need hats and gloves
At all.
