Dark to Light

The day started off gloomy, 
but the sun came out later 
to add even more brilliance 
to the geraniums' hot pink display.
Later that afternoon, a cold wind 
swept through, pulling limbs 
from the trees, with a hail storm 
so heavy the ground looked as 
though the season's first 
snowfall had occurred.
Now, the temperatures have 
returned to the 70s, but the trees
are beginning to change color,
and the geraniums' petals
were beaten to the ground.

Hot pink indeedy. At least something's still hot now the weather has decided to suck.
