We stood out in the sun,

Basking in its glow

Letting it warm the heart

Long frozen.

We closed our eyes


As the light bounced

Behind our eyelids,

An implosion of

Little stars on a

Black backdrop.

Our lips curve

Into a smile,

Content as a cat

In our basking.

Till the shadows

That follow the sun

Enter our horizon.

Till then we stand

With our arms

Wide open,

Letting the sun

Light up the darkness.
