When the Rains Come

When the sun goes out

And the clouds appear

The world turns grey

Gone is the vibrancy

Heavy rains weigh down the world

Weigh down shoulders

Promising to cleanse

But threatening to drown

Winds test strengths

Hours go by


Then months

With no end in sight

It is hurricane season

And there is no reprieve


Lost in the dark

Cold and wet

Not caring

But then a silver lining

A ray of sunshine

Hope in the darkness

Rains ease

And winds subside

Bent but not broken

Soaked but above water

Unstable but on sturdy ground

Time to rebuild

And find the sun
