Rain…

The smell of rain
That scent of freshness
filling the air
as the world weeps
brings back memories
 
Good…
 
Bad…
 
But either way
a sense
of renewal…
of new beginnings…
of starting over…
 
Fresh…
Clean…
New…

New Beginnings…

After the Rain…
All my tears are gone
 
After the Rain…
Pain~
Washed clean
 
After the Rain…
The sun broke through
 
After the Rain…
Rainbow’s End
 
After the Rain…
New Beginnings

Rejoice

The day began with
promise or perhaps
a warning
 
A rainbow woven
through dark grey
storm clouds 
sitting in the 
South West
 
Unusual…
Beautiful…
Ominous…
 
The day goes on…
No storms…
Clouds come and
go bringing the
taste of Summer
sunshine until…
 
Late in the day
at long last the
storm built
growing in strength
until…
darkness descended
in the middle of the
afternoon
 
Rain falls…
Lightning and Thunder
with a sprinkle of
tiny hail
 
Refreshing the air…
Renewing the day…
Bringing cooling rain…
The taste of sunshine
exchanged for a
coolness…
A respite from 
the heat 
The Earth Rejoicing…

Rain

And the rains came…
 
Unexpected
 
Yet…
 
Oh, so 
Welcomed…
 
Drought parched
Earth drinking deeply
Leaves turned skyward
in praise of the
precious drops
 
Everything
Renewed…

Rain Like Tears

Rain Like Tears

It began last night
That mournful sound
The singing that never ceases
A melody taunting her soul…
Causing her heart to
fear the coming storm
 
Rain like scalding tears
freeze with each touch
burning cold…
leaving deep and
lasting scars
Unseen…
Yet…
deeper than any wound

1/29/14 – Update – Timeless

“Timeless”

Oh bliss-to be there–
Where no clock ticks,
Where no planet spins,
Where no sun rises or falls.
There is no sound
Just purity of silence,
Purity of sight,
And purity of unrestrained motion.
The universe dances around me!
Life unimaginable surrounds me!
The flow and energy of spirit astounds me!
Oh bliss!-being here!–
Timeless.
Now I am free.
Spirits sing like sparrows.
Planets spin a sacred song.
The universe, the wise conductor,
Weaves a masterpiece of peace.
Oh such sorrow!-back in body–
Why such sorrow in chains?
The sweet melody now drowned out
By the violence and anxious cacophony.
To bring just a hint of such brilliance here,
Would order even these players to sing.

“Sideways Glance”

Wow!  She looked this way
and her frown became smile!
Just a sideways glance
now frozen in time.
How my anxiety calmed,
And darkness became dawn;
Depression fled to happiness.
Suddenly, I was someone of worth!
Suddenly, I was no longer dirt!
Suddenly, I was given a glance–
and a smile.
Suddenly, as that moment came,
though memory holds tight,
her sideways glance and bright smile
continued on.

1/12/14 – Update – Ocean of Life

Ocean of Life

Chaotic sea with swirling storm
And this boat battered and tossed.
My life replaying before my eyes
As further and further I’m lost.
Thunder shakes and lightning blinds
While wind whips and tears.
There is nothing left to carry me;
I long for someone who cares.
Hope hides as my fight rages on
Against forces far to empowered.
Bones shaking and skin stinging
I know this is my hour.
And just as I fell to the deck
Determined to lie there and die,
There shone a faint light through the storm
Beckoning me to stand and try.
Taking the helm again in this fight
Eyes wide with a new glimmer,
I heaved against power unyielding
To point this wreck toward the light.
Time passed untold through maelstroms’ maw,
My body broken and torn.
At long last the seas seemed to quiet
And I glimpsed the light of new dawn.

Regret

A sorrowful
Soul…
Slow sits
Revisiting the regret
 
Each time gets worse
The darkness thickens
Only a pinpoint
light remains
Lost in the
Abyss…

12/24/13 Update – Tapestry of the Heart

Image:  We Heart It

Image: We Heart It

 
Heart wide open no words to read
but a tapestry of life woven indeed.
The words are the threads of life,
showing happiness… and strife.
What those beautiful words say to me
is a vibrant life being lived.

John is one of my most faithful followers on Twitter.  I am proud to introduce him as a guest poet for Whispers of Poetry.

Here is a little something about my newest Guest Poet… John wrote his introduction:

A husband to one, a daddy to two, a friend to many, and forever entwined to the weaving of the universe’s truth, I use poetry and creative writing to untangle the cacophony of emotion within me.  Rhode Island was my birthplace but I now reside in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Soul Rain

The showers come early sometimes.
Those slow, drenching rains,
Soggy leaves clogging drains,
Earthworms struggling,
Mud sputtering.
Mind swirling,
Blood bubbling,
Soggy eyes staining sheets,
Those long, drawing bleats
of sobbing saturating the soul.

Rain

Time at the beach…

Sand, surf…

Blue sky…

Warm Sun…

A favorite place

Year after year

Night life…

Fun times…

Dancing…

Blue Margaritas…

Summer love…

Will it last?

Can it last…

this time?

Last night…

Girls night out…

He is across

the room

with another

The air left

the room…

Left her body…

The sun is setting on

a beautiful sparkling sea

But…

For her…

All she can think is…

It’s raining now

As her tears

begin to fall
