A Passing Storm

Post by Tom Watson » Sat Feb 28, 2009 11:15 am

I see clouds of hope
and feel small drops of grace
gentle upon my face.

I feel the breeze as a silken rope
comforting and cooling me,
lifting my heart, free...

Trees wave at the sky
and leaves dance even in death
and grasses move with each breath.

The sea's waves lift to catch my eye
urging me to move away
for there is no time to play.

Distant flashes dazzle the air
bringing a message of a harder rain,
as the breeze becomes a wind, howling in pain.

Now trees bend and twist, branches growing bare
and leaves fly, delayed in their descent
and grasses dance in the passion of the moment...

From higher ground I wait it out
Until the sun gently moves its way in
and the sea begins to beckon me again

Where i watch soft white clouds
passing over clean refreshed trees
with lazily falling leaves in the silken breeze...

It's always good to see the challenger entering his/her own challenge. Well done, Tom.

:grin: Thanks Heinz. It has been a bit rough getting more than a few lines together lately, so this one feels good to have gotten out.
