Sagacious words

Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary. ~ Khalil Gibran

The kindness of the clouds

The rain is a gentle kindness of the clouds,
It gives a cooling respite to burning bones-
It improves on dusty environments of old
And creates forests and fields for new life:
Just as healed remnants of a heart burned-
Are moulded slowly into pieces of gold-
As tenacity found in the aftermath of storms;
Within sands of loss and inside the plains of time.
