How Lucky Am I?
Written by Fartun Abdulle
You can tell when a new day is about to start
By how the clouds shuffle
Ever so slightly
Waiting for their cue to part
But it's only when the stage is set
just right, with hardly a trace left of last night
That our star gives her nod, and
The colour show begins;
Strobes of light leaning in,
Into one another
Waiting for the moment
They can reconcile
And I think,
How lucky am I to witness their embrace?
Where the pinks bleed into reds
Where the yellows run into blues
Where the beginning greets the end
How lucky am I?
To brush up against the same winds
That stir the heavens above me
