Coffee Sleeve Stories

Far and Near

By Laurie Evans-Dinneen

Morning fog. Iced raindrops on my car 

bedazzle its midnight blue hue. 

Winter is trying to make its presence known, 

but we’ve grown to like a long Fall. 

Deniers, all, in our light raincoats, heels 

or Xtratufs still flat on hard pavement. 

Rounding the corner to campus, fog clears 

to expose the robes of thick white peaks against 

a crisp blue dawn at mid-morn: Winter’s icy palette – 

as if to say, yes, yes, I am here, and I am near.
