Somehow you have caught up to me
I had shrouded myself in everlasting sunshine
thinking that perhaps you would be warded off,
but we all know that you lurk in the shaded areas,
under tall oaks and twisted brambles,
waiting for a cloud to pass through the rays
to make your entrance.
You are not welcome here, but I accept your presence
as I know you come bearing seeds
which will sprout into magnificent creations
that will burst with light
once the sun peers out from behind the clouds.
And it always does.
