The grass is up to my knees
along with the dandelions and weeds–
well, that may be ever-so-slightly exaggerated...
Since April, there has been an abundance of clouds.
The rains came heavily at first, and the grayness
hung like a weight not wanting to let go.
But I’ve been noticing the colors more of late,
the flowers in my yard growing with a zeal and abundance
I have never observed before.
And interspersed with rain have come golden sunsets,
the light in the western sky stretching late into evening.
I am reminded of a thousand sunsets shared
and trust that they’re being seen through my eyes now.
So if you’re wondering how I am doing
in the midst of your own busy day,
the rain is subsiding, and I am okay.
