April’s PAD — Day Eighteen

April 18, 2014

Prompt: write a weather poem


Stormy Weather

It wasn’t always sunshine with you
sometimes the rain fell
like tears flooding my whole being
I learned to strengthen my levies
gather sunshine in my own greenhouse
and wait out the storms
I emerged from my safe room
not always feeling safe —
Was this just the eye of the tornado
or was I secure for another day?

Dear God, Mother! I inherited your storms
months crawl by on all fours
ducking the sun — my levies are cracked
my safe room demolished
One day the rains crept in
and forgot to stop falling — I am drowning
I am drowning downstream from your ruins
What a legacy you gave me
I am a tornado on a path of destruction
like the path you wore through me

  1. what a beautiful compliment.. I am honored.

  2. Beautifully written! Congrats!
