A Shaft of Light

The overcast sky, the drizzling rain,
the weather dictates my mood again.

Grey and black clouds block the sun.
A dismal morning has begun.

A break in the gloom is what we need
as through the clouds a shaft of light bleeds.

One small ray brings a lift to the heart.
I hold my breath ... and watch the clouds part.
