you are like the sun, shining







you are like the sun
shining
on a day
grey
bleak and dank


like when the cold rain
settles deep within your
bones
and city smog clogs your lungs


you are like the
sun shining on such days
while driving


a bird flutters by
with the flowers budding through
springtime's forever battle
with time


and you
the sun
shining


your energy is
Mother - Father nature
combined


and the clouds
gather in cirrus wonder
trying to block you
from reaching the
Earth


but
you
are
shining


like a stone tossed and turned
flipped over three times
skipped across a pond
ending on the bank of a river
turned upward
neck craned
feet planted
in dirt and silt
a part of history
of time long past
yet here and now
you are
the sun


shining
brightly


like

gold
