110 ~ Chasing Blue Skies Again - Poem by stan pelfrey

Darkness was falling
over my eyes
as the Sun became covered
with ominesce clouded skies.

Shadows replaced by
grey-mattered shades
cement-colored nightmares
were the horror of my days.

Then you came along
and planted hope in me
plowed into my being
and left sweet, savory seeds.

I can smell the lilac,
and taste the wind
now I’m chasing blue skies again.

Now my wasted days
are shriveled in the Sun
I’m no longer lonely,
buds ripening for fruit to come.

Hopeful promises of coming days
blooming from the buds
whispering through the trees
I can feel it in my blood.

You came along
planted your hope in me,
bore into my soul,
and left sumptuous seeds.

Now I can smell the lilac
and taste the wind,
Now I’m chasing blue skies again.

    Excellent poem... it's amazing how one person can instantly change everything! Nothing but blue skies from now on... I hope?
