from shorts to parka
to shorts again....
ah, the fickleness of March
that won't let me sort
my closet for the season

Aurora,

Very timely but also a nice allegory for all those things that frustrate our little plans.

Denis, thanks. Do you think the last line is too long? Ought I to remove "for the season" perhaps?

the length of the last line is fine; indeed it is a fine tanka.

Aurora, Gerald's right. Let it be.

I'll wear shorts even if it's 40 degrees now -- denial!

You have struck a chord, Aurora. Of course, I'm wondering why you take off your shorts to put on your parka.
