the sun and the clouds
tease my mind
with the game they play

will it rain
or will it not
maybe cold or maybe hot

an overt cloud
and a covert sun
take a coat

a covert cloud
with an overt sun
take a coat or maybe not

it is when
they change their minds
and switch at noon

and cause me
to shiver or sweat
and my mind to swoon

it makes me wonder
is that a fair way to play
why do they always want to ruin my day

I love the un-guarantee of covert/overt process that confuses the planning mind!
