It was really chilly this morning.
I decided to stop at a coffee shop between buses
on my way to my Saturday morning swimming session.
At the coffee shop, I had a lox and bagel sandwich
for breakfast, a treat I savor.
The buses were all on detour due to a special event
and, needing time to find the stop for the diverted route,
I left the shop about fifteen minutes early.
I saw the buildings surrounding the Circle bathed
in warm, early morning sunlight that contrasted
sharply with the cold gusts of wind
swirling through the city streets.
