Poem - With the Clouds

The poem “With the Clouds” was written against the prompt, “let’s get wet (and) celebrate with some rain.”

With the Clouds

With the clouds come the rain
accompaniment nature has decreed
I’ll not bear a grudge in response
knowing skies will open up

to sway the drought that came before
those rays of sun from a blue sky
few would deny to be a curse
leaving dust that chokes the throat

the thirst evoked the worse of times
begrudging love in the slow drip
or the deluge of past revels
festivities divorced from love

low hung mist promised streams
prompting memory to fill the space
or prodding travelers to discern
revealing landscapes that converge

cleansing is the benefit
when the dust is washed away
destiny will heal the lack
absolve our sins, renewal’s breadth.
