Anna and the Wind

Tomorrow, snow in the forecast

but today, weather’s relaxed and setting records.

The last time November felt this gentle

was the year you were born.

We took off the heavy baby clothes

that I’d just figured out how to put on

and took the stroller out for hours.

You’d gasp and laugh when you caught

the soft breeze in your upturned mouth.

I’d wheel you, walking behind,

sun warming our cool autumn faces,

me steering while you practiced

how to face into the wind.
