Windows steamed with warmth against ice-cold panes

Frosted trees sprinkled with glimmers of sunshine

And the winds whistle waywards shaking the leaves

That lie along the mudded grass upon Calton Hill.

The window gazes out across the city streets

A church stretched out against light grey skies

And the castle watches above the cobbled streets below.

Taxis hurry past, bustling bodies craning their necks

To hide their faces from the biting winds.

The weather is the sea — fresh like water

Tossed stranded seaweeds fall about

Exhausted on the sand’s surface,

The Portobello promenade paces alongside the beach

As an old man runs his bright orange kite

And the winds lick it up in the air

As February holds Edinburgh.
