Golden Afternoons

Light golden sky on a late afternoon
reminds me that the sun will set soon.
Reminds me that spring will arise
in all its golden glory.

Even though the air is cold
the golden light brings a hint of heat.
The delicate flowers that remain
remind one of a spring day.

In Southern California, winter never stays.
So long as there are flowers and golden sunshine
in this Golden State.
Like the golden light of this late afternoon.

So keep on shining in glory
your solar rays so knowing.
Reminding one of the spring
and the warm days of sunshine soon to spring to life.
