To Catch a Sunbeam

Now is when you catch a sunbeam

and put it in the pocket of your cut-offs,

storing it for a rainy day. Then, you can

cup it cool on tear-stained palms

and release it into the wild, unleashing

freckled sunshine into the madness

of a world at war with light.

        I forgot you were out there. I always remember the Croatia connection, and then forget you moved. 😦 How is the winter, then?

        Cold, went, windy! Hopefully not for much longer … here is hoping. And yes, there is high summer in Croatia right now!
