All That’s Left … #poetry


Hold your hand out – do you feel it?

Tentative drops

The first sign of the storm

Look up as they begin to cascade

falling freely faster

black clouds swirl in the stratosphere

sounds  terrify and thrill

pounding grows nearer shaking the air

light slashes through the sky marking its spot

tumult of water unstoppable

elements compete against each other to create a cacophony of sound

Will darkness ever be dispelled?

A silent interlude

Clouds hear their cue move along their path

yellow rays glow

flowers lift their faces once more

looking down you see a puddle

reflecting the end

all that’s left of me…

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. In my humble opinion I say it hasn’t even become a storm yet, the torrential rain has fallen but lightening moves from ground to sky and it is coming time for that. And in the end if we wind up reflected in a puddle evaporating at least we will have given the storm a hell of jolt and the sun reason to smile.

  2. After reading this, I am looking forward to Spring even more! Remembering the fresh scents that always follow a storm… The relief and feeling of a “clean slate” is what I enjoy most.

    1. Love pictures of lightening not to fond of it when I’m out in it – flew thru it a few times as a small engine pilot – maybe a little too close

  4. I don’t think true lace is scary! It just requires a bit more cotiennratcon.There is something very comforting, though, about getting to the end of a particularly tricky lace row and knowing you’ve just got a whole lot of purling before you have to do the tricksy things again.
