Sunbathing in the rain

lagoon

Warm breeze gently blows

Sunlight catching brilliant green hills

Over head dark black clouds loom

Turquoise is the lagoon

Soft pebbles lead the way

To the warm water lapping

Rain dances above my head

Falling gently onto hot sand

Laying in the heat

Sunbathing in the rain

A soft kiss placed gently

Is sealed perfection.

Spirit in the Sky

Black menacing clouds gather above

Sharp Cracks of thunder roll around the sky

Bright lights flashes lights up the dark

Then lightening forks rush downwards

Deep sinister clouds swell in numbers

Rain batters against the window

Looking deep into this dark obscurity

What do they hide behind their darkness?

Spirits in the sky, desperate to break free

Flat Tyre

I looked in dismay

Couldn’t believe my eyes

A flat on the car

Me in my heels

A sigh and a laugh

No help to be found

A spare in the boot

A jack underneath

And up went the car

Wheel was released

I heaved and pulled

And off shot the wheel

A quick swap was done

A new one to drive

And me in my black dress

And a pair of heels

Amazing what a

Girl can do!

Stars Apart

Sky, black deep beckoning

Brightness of stars

Shine out at me

Can you see what I see

I wonder if they are the same

Do they shine brightly?

Can you feel their wonder?

Can you name them?

If we stood gazing at the stars

Would it be peaceful

Would we be as one?

As we are apart

I see my part of the sky

And where you are

Its different

I wonder what can you see

I hope it is as beautiful as my sky

shoes on the pavement

All manor of shoes

going in the same direction

quick small steps

fast larger ones

shuffles and slow plods

as I follow them all

Spotty wellies with bows on the back

Shiny brown brogues

black scuffed lace ups

high heels tottering

black trainers with neon stripes

furry green boots

purple doc martins

all going the same way

all on a mission

all keen to get home.

Heavy rain

Black clouds adorn the sky

bursting with heaviness

Slight drizzle trickles down

then heavy downpours

gushing from the sky

falling, bouncing on the ground

small streams run down the path

small leaf islands form

changing the streams course

water rushes looking for a way

desperatly  winding down the pth

clouds lighten

rain subsides

everything lookes washed out
