Mona's (actually Maggie's) Friday Word Challenge -- MELT
A Quick Look Outside the Window
Drip drip drip, the snow melts; it falls liquid from the eaves to the concrete, a puddle spreads, confusing a spider who's stumbling along the best it can in the cold.
Yesterday was spring, was warm, was a mirage. That's what the spider thinks, but the spider can't look up into the trees with their tiny green leaves.
Green or white, spring or winter, depending on where you look. A day like a baby with its mother's eyes and father's hair.
