Golden rays of sun ambush
Sitting on the worn wooden swing beneath a thick canopy of wild grapes, I watched the grey fragments of sky between forest branches shift hues, ultimately becoming pristine pieces of clear blue. Thin shafts of sunlight sifted through the leaves, shinning into dense woodlands to melt the lingering night shadows hiding out in rocky gullies of tangled briars and uncurling ferns. Illuminated speckles of gold crept across the shade saturated deep green of our backyard, highlighting wild violets. With often unnoticed, subtle glory, another serene summer day had begun.
