“The long, sultry lull
throaty clouds complained
and squeezed the light
to a dim surrender
A moistrous syncopation
strafed me as I ran
glistened where it touched
the flickering channels
of plaited rivulets
entwined and knotted where they met
at every crowded outlet
Rumblous clouds’ rallentando
– grumblous – slunk away
silenced by a word
from the heavenly one
whose haloed spectrum girdled me
– And then the brightness came.”
A great poem written by Surrey resident Richard B. Callum
