Glimpse

My momentary view
A leap year not happening
This day
It is her birthday
She of my childhood
My friend, my nemesis
Sister afar
I rarely see like this
Snapshot in time
Caught
Barely glimpsed
Before moving off
Into the atmosphere
Of cloud.
We of sun and shade and sky
The clouds that morph
As the seconds tick by
Who are we now
Changing shape
Drifting across the blue
Will the day bring warmth
Or an icy chill
Emotions we knew so well
A bit of sunrise
On your day I give you
Return service requested.
