After the Rain


Gentle rain falls

washing away debris

Remnants from more turbulent times

sink into hardscrabble soil

Provide much needed nutrients

to transform depleted foundations

into renewed resources

Ready to host new life


Scarlet pink rays

nuzzle gray skies

Softening landscapes

in a loving embrace

Leaving the heavens

to weep with joy

As the tempest passes

and the world is refreshed


In a home

that had been shuttered

from storm clouds

Windows are thrown open

to invite fresh air in

as the occupants

dance beneath

a glorious rainbow


  1. We need “new/afresh” beginnings now and then to rinse our spirit from a low to a high to keep life’s momentum on and on.
