Weather (a haiku)


Blessings and sorrows
Our lives change like the weather
Now and tomorrow

This post is in response to this weeks prompt on The Reverie to write about the weather.  A thousand ideas have been swirling through my mind like a howling windstorm after reading the prompt and yet this little haiku is all that made any sense on paper. Hey,  sometimes you can over complicate these things so kept it simple! ~M

Rainfall Strains – Autumns Refrain

the rainfall strains of the day remains
gray cloudy skies
hide the sun
and last goodbyes
the autumns refrain of the coming pains
summer’s gone away
on the wind
songs of yesterday
the remembered chains of hope will reign

First Day of Fall - 2013 (This picture was taken out the window of my studio, of a gray rainy day in the Pacific Northwest and lightly edited using PicMonkey. Typical especially for the first day of fall and a little reminder of things yet to come.  But let the poem and photo be a reminder to cling to hope even in the gray and ‘just believe’ for in the end ‘love wins!’~M)
