Blue Skies

After being smothered by a blanket of grey
for far 
far too long,
seeing a mere smudge of cotton blue
kissing the edges of grey
with golden sunlight
made the cracks in the pavement glow
the oil stains burst from the cement
like fireworks.

Winter still has its arm around the country
embracing it
everyone sharing its body temperature 
but its heart is beginning to pump
and together
we're beginning to dethaw. 

PS I took the picture for this one about a year ago - the two match quite well I think :)
