Little Things

Stomping through puddles

in my Sunday best

Sailing paper boats

in rain puddles.

Lessons on the smell of rain

“Smell that?”, she’d ask.

When the first plopping raindrops

hit parched soil.

Time taken for the little things,

never a bother

to my warrior mother.

Sunsets

sunsets
without some clouds
really are just, sunsets
but clouds, they add, layers, intrigue
Interest
making sunsets spectacular
nature’s peculiar gift-
bothersome clouds
sets pace
