Day # 5 NaPoWriMo.
I’m stealing a line from a friend that wrote this on Facebook the other day and using it for my prompt today. Gotta say I love it. The changes in the season makes for deceptive weather. That “handsome liar’ gives of some Big Boy Sunshine and then you walk out to feel it all over your body cause you’ve been waiting on it alllll damn winter, and the ‘bastard cronie’ regales you with a bitter, chilling wind that shrivels you into fetal position.
“The Sun is a handsome liar and the wind is it’s bastard crony..” Andrew Perry, Ann Arbor
“The Sun is a handsome liar”
Lie to me you handsome bright boy
Shine your deception all over me
Take my hungry moment’s desire.
Blind me with some of that radiance.
I’ll take what I can get worn tired
by the grey gloom’s flat stare day
after day in her slow wrap of depression
Be my own private liar Sunny boy
Deceive me with your best shot
cause I can take it if it warms me up
Cut’s through that flat stare of gloom
with my eyes wide open receiving.
You can’t bully me with that bastard crony
of yours sending that divisive wind’s chill
Hoping to send me away from your blaze.
Not happening with Spring begging free
and the fever of your Light, lightens me
up no matter what bastard element you
put in my way.
I’ll sing the wind to calm, dance in the
rain, lay myself down on the greening
Earth and let you lie all over me.
