April Showers

thunder’s angry tone
pitched against a murky sky
April showers flow

Present Darkness

Tears and rain fall down.
Hearts break, thunder crashes, and
The lightning brightens
Darkness, momentarily.
Missing the times of laughter.

Test of Faith

Wind and rain raged on –
Storm tested the bows and faith
Parted clouds by morn
Made way for the sun to shine –
Still puddles reflect day’s grace

To Withstand the Storm

Sunshine after rain –
Cloud shapes traverse blank canvas
Of fall sky and hearts,
Endless possibility
Grows to renew the storm-worn

Seasons

Seasons come and go
Downpours of rain, then ice and snow
Sunshiney days and a cool evening breeze
Budding flowers and leaves falling from trees
Time passes on while nature puts on a show
