Sunny Day


There was a day

A momentous occasion

When the world just stopped

All movement ceased

All sound was cut off

And the whole tapestry of normal life stood entirely still

The sun's overwhelming rays beat down upon me

I stood there, awestruck

Shocked really

Not knowing what to do

What to say

Yet I spoke words

Sounding foreign to my ears

Sounding average to everyone else

But sounding, what, to you?

Amazing?

Comforting?

Maybe, just maybe?

One can never be sure

But time was ready to proceed

After what seemed to be hours and hours

Perhaps even a whole day

The second hand went tick

And the lives of trillions of average people

Went on

Gracefully

Victoriously

While the warmth of the sun gave me one last embrace

One that didn't quite seem to last long enough

And life went on

Until next we met

Sun and I
