weather is contagious; that they should disclose
you can’t help but smile when a loved one radiates energy
spreading from their fingertips and into your toes.
it isn’t surprising that sadness causes the same infectious chain reaction
but it is misery that sticks with you longer, long after the source of gloom is gone
taking away all satisfaction.
out! out with the woes,
out with dolour! out with the
murk, see how it flows.
after a grievous storm there are two options in store
either all is iced over, feelings turned to frost
or back to the sunshine from before.
