Eight (9)

1 after the storm here
in the city it
is gray and
dreary
2 so I get excited
when a ray of
sunlight
enters the room
3 back home
after the storm
the sun shines through
the trees
and suddenly
4 there’s a field of
pink flowers
in the garden
sometimes they are white
never pink and white
at the same time
5 the goat ate many of
the flowers
but they keep coming back
6 here it is cold and
drab
the concrete doesn’t care if
it rains or shines
but there
7 after the storm
everything rises to
meet the sun
8 the goat wants to
go out and eat
but keep her away
from the flowers
