(((After The Rain))) Poem by Theodora (Theo) Onken

(((After The Rain)))

Rating: 3.5

I missed you the other day
When the dew left its diamond glitter upon the grass
And the squirrels and frogs were frolicking merry
When the silence of daybreak calmed
And the sunrise ever warmed
With its gentle rays dancing across my skin
Giving me hints of a fluffy white cloud or two
Promising an entire new day
Of peace and contentment
A perfect day-this
But for the glaring-almost blindingly-blazing
Absence of you

A very rare and great poetic expression of sadness and gladness together; both being the expressions of love. I enjoyed very much.

What makes this poem so powerful is the list of simple pleasures we take for granted are diminished when there's a loved-one missing, unable to share them with you any longer. Your poem made me cry for those I've lost and yes, maybe one or two of those tears were for me. Good poem. Effective.
