MS (8.4.1929 / Marton, Lancashire)

0166 January Sunlight

and the afternoon sunlight
lasted that little bit longer
like an unexpected, perfect Christmas present
that got delayed in the mail
and I'm filled with a sheer gratitude
that somehow passed me by
in long, hot, lazy, selfish, glorious

Very atmospheric. It made the hairs on my neck stand up.
