Storm

Storms start silently. I watch the west.
Indiana farmland’s prairie flat.
Living here is peaceful. But the best
Is spring in spite of storms and things like that.
The west grows dark and I am looking at
Those clouds above. I want them to explain
Should they bring more than welcomed springtime rain.

Windshield in the Rain

From Winter to Spring or Dusk to Dawn

May the winter not last long.
I thought of spring while walking.
When there's music soon comes song
Melodiously talking.

I’ll look with hope to find you there
Smiling garlanded aware.

Next week I will be featuring final couplets: poems where the last two lines are a couplet like the one above.

Spring

Job

Beyond those tribulations
His consolations grew.
Clouds ascend and may they end
But leave refreshing dew.

Justice and Mercy

A devil pointed out some sin
That happened long ago.
I knew that justice ought to win.
A devil pointed out some sin,
But mercy found a back way in
So gratitude could grow.
A devil pointed out some sin
That happened long ago.

Vine and Palm Tree

OLN

Stretching limbs of autumn
Water somewhere near
The silence that the forest holds
Brings peace to ears that hear.

Water Nearby

Autumn Forest Winter Snow

Seasons bring their offerings,
Presents with a bow.
Open daily one by one.
Awaken like a morning sun.
Some light will help one know.

Winter Snow

Cloudy

The sun comes rising from the sea,
A sometimes cloudy mystery
And sometimes not. It feels OK
To sit near terns who watch with me.
