We are all mortals
No news that
Born to live
Born to die
And shadows inbetween

Sun Peeking

The sun peeked out today
It's been sulking as the Clouds have got their way
and have been playing hide and sneak

The sun peeked out today
The garden soon filled with flittering flutterers
Dancing  with sunbeams, a tango, I think
A lizard slipped out to snatch at sunwarmth
Birds cheered hoorah, hooray, we're dry today
And I,

I missed the rain

I am quaking
Knees shaking
Heart pumping
Toes shivering
Goosebumps rising
Teeth a chatter
That's it
No more watching
