In Seattle coffee shop, 
Two college-age women 
Mull over beverages
And lecture notebooks,

One in dark red galoshes,
The other in rubber sandals,
Typical of informal Northwest,
Reflective of variable weather.

Puget Sound offers gamut of
Wind, rain, sun, overcast, fog
Damp cold, temperate heat.
You name it, it visits us.

"If you don't like Seattle's
Weather, wait a few moments,
The opposite will appear."
And, sure enough, it does.

Weather, like so much of life, is
Unpredictable. Because climate is
Our envelope, we chat endlessly 
About contrasts and inconveniences.
