lifting clouds
a yellow monarch
heralds the sun

Our summer started out with rain and clouds. I was sitting at the breakfast table one morning, trying to decide what indoor activity I would plan for that day, when I caught some movement from the corner of my eye. As I turned my head to look through our French doors onto the deck, I saw a yellow monarch flying towards the house. At that very instant, the sun also came out. It almost looked as if the monarch was carrying the sun on its back.
