Sometimes there are none.
Sunny days. No shade. Cold winter nights.
Sometimes they are quite ordinary.
Sheets of gray. Nondescript. Hiding what’s behind.
Sometimes they provide interesting backdrops.
To enhance the ordinary.
Sometimes they bring what we need.
To fill creeks. To quench thirst. To water the earth.
Sometimes they’re a gift.
… If we pay attention…
To dazzle. To delight. To make us smile.
Today’s unexpected delight… Today’s gift.
