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.
