“Always take the weather with you”

This poem was written on Sunday 28 November at approximately 9.05am. I can be that specific because I was on a train to do a segment on Wellington Community Radio that was due to start at 10am.

The title of this post comes from a line in the song “Weather with you” by Crowded House. They are a band consisting mostly of New Zealanders, was based in Australia for a time and now I think they are in semi-retirement?? Very talented musicians who knew about how to write about the weather and seasons. You can find more information on Crowded House at their official band website: https://www.crowdedhouse.com/

Clouds
Dragged across the
landscape
Like half-formed
ideas:
Clouds that aren't sure
of themselves,
not confident enough
to commit to an
act of rain.
And too lazy to
blow through to another town
further up the line.
The sky presents as bald patches
of blue.
Ignored
by the swans, lolling
on the suddenly calm harbour.
