Today the sun sulks
behind cloud cover,
tired of our complaints.
A brief respite from the heat,
but of the drought?
No end in sight.



Today the day just can’t decide
what it wants to do.
Cloud, drizzle, wind or sun?
Checking all the options!

Cloud Curtain

The sun peeps from behind the cloud curtain
at every slight opportunity,
like a small child at a school concert
looking for Mum and Dad.


Not a cloud in the sky.
Wall-to-wall sunshine.
How long will it last?
