National Poetry Month – Day 13

April 13 – Prompt: “How do rainy days make you feel?”

Rain doesn’t always act as a lady should,

but respect – she always demands.

And her wildness of nature is endearing

as I see myself in her every dance.

So even if the storms rage for days,

And wind angrily blows about,

And the clouds let loose their bolts of light

As the thunder begins to shout…

There’s something calming about the chaos

And a gentleness to the rain

That lets me know I’m not alone –

Even nature can release it’s pain.

The rawness of all emotion found within her

Whether percieved as good or bad,

Allows me a sense of freedom in her presence

As I have rarely before had.

And if she can bellow out her fury

And still cause the flowers to bloom,

Something even more beautiful than this storm

Shall soon fill this now empty room.

And if I can just keep pushing on until I notice

New growth bursting forth like fresh blades of grass

I’ll know the worst is ending soon

And good things will come to pass.
