It was dull and grey most of the day, but as evening approached, the clouds parted in the west and the sun peeked through. I was cooking supper and listening to the shouts of children outside soaking in the longer hours of daylight. I stood for a moment and looked at the sky. I am glad spring lies close on the horizon. I have missed the sun these long winter months and I am ready for a change from the gray hues of February and March.
This sunset was a brief promise of things to come. Soon we will sit in lawn chairs and swat the bugs as the sun settles slowly in the evening sky. For now, I will stand in the warmth of my kitchen and enjoy it from the window.
