Peter Hall

(Sydney, Australia.)

After the rain


Hail
Wind
Rain
Chaos.

Fallen trees
Overturned cars
Ruined fences
Higher tides.

Inconvenient clean up
Sweep away water
Broken branches replete
Inconvenience for awhile.


Sun shining brightly clearly
Fresh branches beginning growth
New life beginning fresh
Birds singing in trees.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

A friend wrote to me about how his life is difficult. He went for a walk after the storm and heard a bird on a tree. He said he heard the voice of God saying 'after your storm, you also will be singing'. This one is for him! .
