Elastic Days

Days like elastic,
when it gets colder
they shrink,
but as it warms up
they ease up
and lengthen
a bit.
Wrapped around
everything
that summer days
hold,
clutching tightly
winter days
as the air becomes
cold.
Seasons change
elastic days
stretch out or recede.
Seasons change
elastic days
adjust to the need.
Pulled out by
the summer sun,
set back with winter snow,
but if at last
the elastic snaps,
where then would our days go?
