It will rain all day today.
Pools of water beg children play.
Though chasms of voids, skin and bones
it is fitting for us to make nature our home.
We know the sun shine will follow
even when places within seem so hollow.
At times of despair we should allow
even welcome rest that accompanies clouds.
A short respite should be welcome.
Sit at the window, coffee…have some.
We are the tenants of the soul,
responsible we are to nurture the soil.
Where both water and sun meet
is where we turn bitterness to smell sweet.
