winter in McAllen

(click photo to enlarge)

on one of those
rarest of days
in McAllen, Texas
when winter
has descended
ever so briefly
on the town

leaving lush
tropical plants
burned and blackened
(like no summer heat
can do)

the air is palpable
crisp and
deliciously cold
on church-going

(the church-goers
all safely bundled
against any more
serious exposure)

the sun still shines
(brighter it seems
than in summer)
and flaunts itself
high in the sky
well out of
winter's reach...
