I Miss the Sun




I Miss the Sun

On rain-dark days

I miss the slant of sunlight,

melting its butter

on the hardwood floor,

in the places the cat likes to sleep.

After days and days

of cold and damp,

I forget the light’s still here;

well, up there, above the clouds

just twiddling its thumbs.

And forget,

after days and days

of sun and heat,

I’ll be moaning for the rain.

your words are so true, it's always best to have a balance!

Balance is to be wished for but instead we receive endless days of the same before a switch. The season has been odd this year.

The image that you create with the light is so rich!

I liked that myself, Mama Zen. Thank you for stopping by.
