It isn’t a sunny day today

when you spot

pigeons against a dreamy blue-

and miss the sparrows

or even crows-

when your thoughts escape

like little white sails

in a cloud trail-

but today

you outstretch your hands

to hold the clouds

in raindrops-

cold, wet-

look at those huge fronds

of coconut palms


all those mango flowers

determined not to fall off

swaying with the wind-

and you are thinking

of the war clouds


over your borders-

it isn’t a sunny day today-
