This harsh reminder

Despite the heat, a chill emerged,
this harsh reminder that the days
won't always be -- nor have they
always been -- warm and sunny,
the road not always flat and smooth;
that our vision of the forest
may have been -- and might soon be --
obscured by the stark terror
of the trees; that we could get
stuck in winter, and never notice
spring, hovering on the horizon.
