Weather Forecast

Light does not fall on us equally.

There are hours of gentle illumination, while some remain in shadow.

Random flashes which leave you for no reason at the front of the line.

Or the end, randomly burned, scorched,

with head shaking disbelief. Tranquil dusk light on leaves.

Other days blinded into paralysis, unable to see a way forward.

 

I remain in a thundercloud waiting room, counting shadows like minutes.

Weatherizing my soul before the next hurricane.

Steadfast, determined in my stance, for a return of the glow

In stillness it will find me.

Sun’s warm hand on my back again.

This too shall pass.

  2. Ali, this is a thoroughly mind bending poem, especially your centre line, “I remain in a thundercloud waiting room, counting shadows like minutes” insightfully brilliant. I see you’ve had lots of likes so far, but no comments, sometimes I wonder…. your words here are outstanding and deserving of many accolades ….

    1. Thank you Ivor. Your reply means a great deal. I sometimes wonder what readers make of my words but I also think that many of us are moving at warp speed. I have had a challenging day and your comments are truly uplifting especially coming from a fellow poet. I hope your day is grand.
