May me 2.jpg




    Storm clouds

Like black sheep of heavenly domain

Billows of dark portent

Swept along by northeast winds

Hit great pockets of warmth


Clap loud Hoorays

    in mid-air


Sends arrows of light flashing

Through torrents of angelic tears


Catching at streams of light

Spills prisms of color

One faint hue at a time


A magnificent arched palette

watercolor strokes across the sky

   paints hope

on human lives

who have lost their way
