Storm Clouds

Evening Rain
By SherinMary Zacharia


Wings flutter fast, homeward

Drizzle brews more into a storm.

Vermillion sky turns darker

In sorrow of the fading sunshine

Fledgelings huddle over drenched twigs

Worries seek shelter beneath tired wings.

Frets from the pavements chase the clouds

Damp homes await hard-earned  morsels.
