A Ray of Sun

A ray of sun 

True sunshine cracked the boards,

Touched my irritated wet feet.

Swift blooms sang with green crowds, 

With the twitter of flying folk in the heat.

A faraway pleasant cloud in sight 

As wild odours encompass the air,

The sky smiles in regurgitating light, 

To land that’s no more a sombre bare!

Sunshine has brought a furtive progress,

Now will clouded minds awaken and stir

Surely an endured hiatus…

wait! cool winds blow with a little whirr! 

I whisk the hair of my face 

Breathe a convivial breath

Lustrous sky steals a cloudy gaze 

As warmth wraps in a springy stealth.
