Santita

Clarity

In the middle of the storm

She stood

The rain poured heavily

As the wind blew strongly

Not accounting for time

She remained still

The clouds cleared

The sun shone

It was in that moment

She knew

Nothing lasts forever

        that's a double edged sword, but very true none the less. Brilliant.

        • Santita

          True. Thank you for your comments.

        • FredPeyer

          So true and so well said, Santi!
          Standing in that rain and wind, she needed a new hair makeover! Nothing lasts forever!

              Clarity indeed after the storm... The realization that everything is ephemeral. Great write!

                      A fine write Santita. Oh yes, as Fred says, it gave her a bad hair day! She needed to get indoors. Why she mucking about in that storm?! heehee.

                      • Santita

                        lol she was counting - it was a syllable storm!

                      • Mugsdaddy

                        Beautiful, I could see everything so clearly it gave me my own epiphany poetry as beautiful as yours will surely last forever.

                          A profound writing my friend. Resonates with my "Blinkered".

                          • Santita

                            This was the one of my "stream of consciousness", dear. So it is inspired by you in a way, so Thank you!

                            • Santita

                              Good poem , simple yet poignant

                              • Santita

                                Thanks, W!

                                This storm is for good. During the storm, it is hard. When you see the sunshine, we know the bad is over and everything will be fine.
                                Waiting for the sunshine moment to come.
                                Wonderful writing.

                                • Santita

                                  Thank you, M&M I enjoy reading your perspective on my writes.

                                  Very well said. Even our darkest hours, I should know, are only temporary. Thank you for sharing this beautiful bit.

                                    you weathered the storm
                                    and came through the other side
                                    even if it took a while to quell
                                    great piece
                                    hope the sun lasts even longer

                                      Brilliant. A gentle presentation of a life norm. You chose the stormy side of life, (more memorable?), and the glow that follows. Life is but a series of changes. No changes, no life. When the Sunshine fades into the tempest only the strong survive. Your work has captured my interest. I'll be reading more. - Phil A.

                                        Thank you, Phil, for such a thoughtful and generous comment! I look forward to reading your work as well. Thanks again - S

                                        In the storm, youre swept by waves of wind and rain, you run, mentally you run, but you're running on ice. The sunlight melts the ice of your willpower and you run, you run free. Maybe a positive spirit could last forever? Written like the storm has provided inner strength and now wisdom blossoms. You're good.

                                          Great write dear Santita and yes, nothing lasts forever and we never know when it is going to end. I'm back here and felling happy to read your poem. I'm not gone with the wind yet.
