Merry Christmas Vancouver!

Today warmed up
just enough to greet
rain: freezing drizzle,
the forecast realized.

A week of cold:
winds and sun,
frozen over ponds.
Concrete lawns

thawed back to damp.
Wet climbed-up wool
socks from the toes
strangled cold feet.

The anticipation of snow
slunk into puddles
that soaked through shoes:
Merry Christmas!
