My verandah is basking in sunshine;
Sunshine that feels like melted butter today,
That which falls over everything
In a joyous whoop!
It wants to submerge everything
With unbridled exuberance,
Warm, playful, extrovert sunshine,
Like a lover’s passionate impatience,
Like a child’s unabashed playfulness,
Falling over my shoulders,
Running all over my face,
Happy to have found me
after many a decade.
Happy to have found
a willing friend,
Who wants to give in
To its friendliness.
Sunshine that falls
all over the place,
That deluges my face,
reminds of God’s assurance,
To dispel the dregs of loneliness
And provides much needed solace!
