Inconstant as ever, April in Australia is nothing short of surprising.

PROMPT: April

3
April:
a tease of the winter frost,
a night of shrieking, hailing rains
in amongst the scorching heat,
each chilli wilts in the yard
(nipped roots from the cold
and burnt tips from the sun),
as a dying thorn pricks my finger
and my finger picks a dying rose,
the crunch and stumble of grass blades underfoot -
cold covers and warm wellingtons await
while the leaves decide
to float or fall...
