Sleet #poetry #rain #winter


 

snow forest

Looking up to curse nature’s tears

you freeze as you plummet toward my plot of dirt

the contingent of birds and woodland life shivers

no one wants to venture out

bombarded by winter’s calling card

with one added degree of warmth you thaw

no longer a harsh sleet

your cascade is gentle as you brush against leaves

caressing and nourishing the brown earth

 

 

 Rain is grace; rain is the sky descending to the earth; without rain, there would be no life.

John Updike

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. Love your positive take on the cold and rain (great quote). Rain washes away the old and the dirt, and maybe the soul too – it can be so therapeutic sitting and watching the rain sometimes 🙂
