After A Drenching Rainy Night - Poem by Daleen Enslinstrydom

the light is crisp and bright
and the air is fresh and washed clean,
the sky is more radiant and bluer
than the bluest blue
and it’s my favourite colour almost cobalt-blue
and it invites you to start the day
with songs of praise
and the verbenas that cover the ground
are the colour of the morning sun
and flowers welcome you
as they shiver and dance
in the light breeze
that plays and frolics with the autumn leaves
and everywhere geraniums bloom in pots
with glistening raindrops on their leaves
while the sun breaks through the clouds
with expectations of a new day
and shakes of its nightly garment
as it sings a song of praise to the Lord with its rays
and a turtle dove coos a love song to its mate
near to the gazanias that grow in an old bathtub
against the back wall
and the garden calls you
to come and plant some bulbs in its soil
that will be flowering in spring
and this beauty is the last reminder of summer
just before winter sets in.
