Joy

Untimely darkness

Leaden skies

Pouring rain

 

Adults and teenagers

Umbrellas up

Duck and weave

Through the downpour

 

Along comes a grim-faced mother

Holding the hand

Of a drenched six year old

Who yells with joy

and delight

At being in the rain

 

Such unbridled joy

Embracing life

Makes me grin

And emphasises

Chardhin’s point

“Joy is the infallible sign of the presence of God”
