The sun shone brightly today, it’s been so grey, I was quite giddy with it.
Tulips on my desk glowed
The hazel catkins, as hot as mustard
Pussy willow, shooting stars against a deep blue sky.
The Christmas lights in the kitchen window (I can never bring myself to take down all the lights, until at least late January, I need a little sparkle on the darkest days) caught the sunlight and were truly solar powered
Then in a magical moment they flashed a rainbow across the kitchen sink to the north side of the house.
(These swift light markers of the changes of the seasons, we call ‘sun on the lintel’ moments).
Hummm, the light also indicated that a little house work might be in order, cobwebs on the fireplace,
but that can wait. I’m off out into the sunshine.
