After The Rain…

I feel each drop, down my cheek,
As I walk, I know not what I seek,
Once darkened skies are now clear,
Yet deep within, there is fear.

Little steps, in the damp sand I see,
I do not know, who is leading me,
Am I right, in following them so?
I search for answers, I do not know.

Shadows now, I leave behind,
The light in front, I look to find,
A little hand, holding mine,
We walk together, with the sands of time.

Are my eyes wet, I know not,
The haunting past, I have forgot,
A warm heart, I feel close to me,
Spurring me onward, steadily

As I walk, I know not what I seek,
Chasing dreams, that once seemed bleak,
Success, that I want, will soon be mine,
For after the rain, the sun does shine.

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  2. The sun unwinds, the moon remindsThat even darkness has some lightThe lovely stars they twinkle so,That we have much much far to go, Your work of art; I loved the startI got reminded of the pastThe moonlit nights the darkened shoresThe songs that play in people’s cores The handsome seas, the sightless treesThey all remind me my good deedsThe lonesome sands; the haunted rocksSo nice it feels right through the socks My dreams you saw, my heart says trueI spill my innermost thoughts to youThe kiss that lasts on my own cheek, Its the kiss time gave me, so to speak!:)Excellent work, leo.Loved it.

After the rain.. sun does shine :)beautiful!This is your genre.. inspiration.. always has been!Kinda reminded me of the words.. i once wrote…They walk together foreverAn inseparable pair as one can seeFor when despair knocks your doorHow far can hope be?For even in the darkest night,Hides, a whiter shade of paleAnd when the storms pass by,And darkness rescinds,It lives to tell the taleThe link is here
