A Storm with the Sunshine

Sharing this poem with The Poetry Pantry at Poets United, and with Open Link at Imaginary Garden with Real Toads. And also with Prompt Nights (A Dollop of Sunshine).

A Storm with the Sunshine

the rain continues to pour,
day in, day out, through the night
the world around changes,
till the sun again shines bright.
but with it, does the storm end?
for our world has changed too,
so what becomes the sunshine,
for a storm the sun gifts you?

Poetry & writing 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 sunshine after a storm brings rainbows and that is magical 🙂
    There is always sunshine after a storm and life as we know it goes on even when we are in the midst of a thunderstorm.

    Beautiful and poignant poetry Leo.
