Weather Challenge - Whirlwind

I know, I know [hangs head]... not only hideously late, but not even catching up in the right order.  But the Muse has been so recalcitrant for the last couple of weeks that when she showed up brandishing a Whirlwind idea, I didn't dare tell her to disappear and come back with a Torrent!  So hope playing catchup is allowed...

May Morning

Dawn on this cloudless blue day finds the Fellowship stirring; soon there is feverish activity outside the tent. Pippin discovers with horror a silver thread unravelling on his surcoat. Gimli polishes his axe-head for the thousandth time. Sam's frying bacon for Frodo, and the smell brings Merry forth, hastily towelling dripping hair.

Legolas, cross-legged on his bed-roll, serenely observes the whirlwind, with an arched brow which Gandalf reads perfectly: Mortals... always such flurry...

Can you blame them for wanting all perfect, this morning?... The wizard smiles past his pipe-stem. 'Tis not every day we witness the crowning of a king!
