From darkness to light

 Watching a distant storm skimming the horizon
while standing on dry land
with just the slightest feeling 
that the wind could bring the trouble nearer
and there we are without an umbrella or galoshes.
Then breathing a sigh of relief as it passes
and the sun returns.

If only all our worries could be blown away so easily.

Streams of (sunlit) pleasure ever flowing

Catching the sunlight wherever and whenever possible
as sadly it is not ever flowing just now.
And when it fades at15.51

bring on the twinkly lights
and be glad that it is only eight days until
the Winter Solstice.
