The sun is shining
on my left cheek,
after a full day’s rain it is a welcome
change. I sit a moment,
just soaking it in. Often
in the evening,
after I’ve finished the dinner dishes
but before I’ve tidied the room,
I notice all the things and
where they’ve piled up
throughout the day.
Thinking that at times
life feels so cluttered,
knick-knacks and bric-a-brac gathering dust
because I’ve focused
on just managing the mess,
but then there is that ray of sunshine,
bleeding through on the grey.
And that mess
is really just us living


Where Am I?
