Little things for joy

The sky is gloomy,
Dark clouds loom over what could have been a bright day

A small puppy, sitting on a garbage bin
Sees me, then wags his tail
Two for joy…
Birds on the electric wire sing a song of hope
A cat mews and looks at me smiling as it crosses the road
A butterfly dances around then peaches on the fence
Fluttering its wings
Bees hums their swansong on the morning blossoms
A cow oblivious to anything grazes the morning dew
Mother is feeding her infant and singing lullaby
The butter is melting perfectly on a toast
Children are going to school,

A rainbow bursts through the cloudy gloom
…The sun is always there.
