Ode to my Coat

My breath was invisible in the chill morning air, but I still turned the collar up on my winter jacket as I headed out for the day. The forecast of a warm afternoon prompted me to leave my scarf and mittens behind, and I was not wrong to do so. Spring is definitely on the way.

As the season changes we thoughtlessly shed the coats that have kept us warm all winter for more temperate gear. They have done their job well, but on a certain day we put them away, and they hang in the closet unused and forgotten until the weather turns cold again.

Was today that day? The last day for my coat? If the soft air coming in through the back door keeps its promise, then the answer is probably, Yes. 


  1. Yay, spring!! It's so refreshing. Your coat is probably tired and will enjoy a long nap...hopefully.

  2. I hope you are right and we will not need those heavy coats again for a while. Never thought about it from the coat's point of view before. Great slice!

  3. Oooh, be careful not to jinx it!
