Rainy Day

-

The placid calm settles upon the landscape

I breathe in the fragrant air of morning

A gaze to the forlorn skies far away

Darkened clouds drifting into mourning

In the narrow space of a few moments

The horizon is slipping out of sight

A deep heaviness eases into my heart

As the day fades like early night

-

Holding out a single hand

Catching tears fallen from the sky

As thunder crashes across the land

Resonating in a distance, this echoing sigh

How hard I continued to try

Reaching for that rainbow

A simple smile, when the tears dry

The promised calm after the storm

-

In the rainy days, the darker days

Tears trapping me in an embrace

Remembering eternally

Forever and always…
