Yesterday the clouds
Travelled higher in the sky
A few dropped
Lazy raindrops
As they passed

The sun looked in
And warmed life
Into a moist
Subtropical Celebration

The earth steamed
Cats sun baked
People sweated
And swam and smiled
The parrots held a party
At dusk in honour of
Such a day

If I were a seed
I might have chosen
This day to send
My first shoot
Out into the world
