On Surprise

"Expect nothing; live frugally on surprise."
Alice Walker

Clouds clothe ridge with light gray.
Mist settles in valley, branches, at my feet.
No sun, no drama, just rain, peace, and beauty...
Then, ridge reveals
Blue sky above,
gray clouds ahead,
rain, and moving mist.
Change so fast, you scream, "aha!"
With the crows cawing
At unexpected surprise...
