Let’s go for a walk I said to her

Bit cold she said but it’s nice

Rubbing shoulders

Holding hands

Looked up…looked twice

There in all its glory

The sky opening up its story

Blink and the clouds move

Don’t blink and watch the waves move

We paused

Wanted you to know about this

How to know it’s true

Place you in the frame

No longer just a claim

Wanted you to see this view

This is the namal

What we call the port

Where boats one docked

Fishermen fought

Over housewives sought

We sat

Could stand no more

To see such skies

Such moving skies

We needed a floor

Every moment brought change

The coffee could wait

Whip out the phone

Before it’s too late

Be the only one to catch the moment

Or not the only one…

Indeed not the only one

With finger on trigger

Eye at the ready

Viewfinder raised

Who can resist

Redder and redder

The sun sinks slowly south

Each tuft of cloud reflecting

Warming to the moment

As evening falls

One lamp

That’s all we have to offer

But it will be enough

See its light

Its power over all

For this is the lamp of the skies

Stand tall

While all around is small

Be wise

Until again sun rise
