All These Belong - Poem by Ernestine Northover

A ripple of water,
A deluge of rain,
A vacuum of silence,
A torment of pain,
A sparkle of stars.
A bouquet of flowers,
A radiance of joy,
A sprinkling of showers,
A beam of sunshine,
A chorus of song,
A smile of contentment,
To us, all these belong.

    Hmm. I thought the torment of pain was the most unusual item - everything else seems to have either a neutral or positive connotation. But I liked the flow. -chuck (Report) Reply

    I like this a lot, but dare I say that a 'cluster' of showers seems a tiny bit odd to me? I feel really mean saying so after everyone else's enthusiastic comments, and criticizing one single word (I cannot criticize the rest) , but that was my reaction. Nevertheless it is a beautiful poem and flows seemingly effortlessly. Well done. (Report) Reply

    Beautiful images, Ernestine and the short lines add to the simplicity.
