A practice in patience

standing in the shadows

you dawn on me

with a glowing smile

to wake up my heart

Clouds blotted you today

replaced with incessant rain

threatening stormy weather

refracted to my soul

Time’s lethargy

spreading contagiously

as hours creep on

while I wait for you this time

I ought to love the rain

filled with memories

of its gentle dance with me

synchronised with my storm

But I am back to longing again

to find the Sun waiting for me.

    1. Thank you Kathy😀 Of course I’ll always plead poetic license but I had good material to work with. It’s been raining all week with flood warnings everyday. On the other hand, we’re grateful for the rain since we’ve been facing a serious drought.

  1. I love the muted light of sunrise and sunset, but can hardly tolerate sun full-on. Too much, too bright. Rainy days seem cozier to me somehow. But I get this, and have many friends who get depressed without enough sunshine. 🙂

    1. Oh I have nothing against rain, problem for me is that it gets too cosy that I have less inclination for work. I’d say I’m far more of a sunshine girl. Even now it’s raining though. But it is all good since we had been facing water restrictions.😀
