Thunder Rain

Rain cleansing broken hearts as light appears

Water healing pain buried not forgotten

Flowing through the lives

Of everyone deep in sorrow

Tumbling words in a gush of water


Fumbling “I’m sorry” in a muddy pool

Wind curling around feathered leaves

Thunder beings crashing through the panes

Beckoning ‘get up’ as

Swallows take flight in bursts of energetic black


The tall sky keeps throwing off its cleansing cloak

Begging us

To wash away the stains
