Evening Rain

Written for dVerse “St Lucy’s Day” – celebration of light

the trees drag their tips
through a bog of cloud
that sodden, hold-it-in bandage
stone grey and shiftless

and then 
due to some mountain’s scrape
the sun falls out 
deep as yellow thunder 
staining grass and sky alike

and the rain still falls 
but cautiously
simmering among leaves
and just doing its best

always aiming for sparkle-side-up
