During a stroke of sunshine

I took the camera

to see a difference


in front of me

Smallness expressing

what I had felt when

the first rays cut the grey

to meet the shiver of my winter skin

Through the lense I could see

a dance between light and matter

opening an in-between of positive vibez

like a humming bird’s world connecting flutter

And that is how this ray of hope beamed me into the islands
