finally sun

finally sun
in the sharp corners
and hard surfaces
flung out
across the ground
walking barefoot
my choice
I step here
step there
cut my foot on
hidden dangers
walk further
in the sunshine
until the sun dips down
behind the rows
of houses and
the silhouettes
of still bare trees
waiting for buds and
blossoms to open
finally sun
and its shadows
to follow along
the long empty streets
