Samah Khan

Untitled - Poem by Samah Khan

And it rained, and it snowed and it hailed all in one-
The sky held everything in place but for the sun
No leaves on the trees, on the bare boughs none,
For it rained and it snowed and it hailed all in one.

God’s Wrath undone, they said in unison,
Flowers died in mid-bloom, right beneath the sun,
(Its watchful eye deceives no one) , But it was helpless when it rained and hailed and snowed all in one.

So I closed my eyes and began to run,
That’s when the rain and the snow and the hail had come undone,
I’d had enough-so they stopped (though they’d barely begun)
Right before I found out that it rained and snowed and hailed on me,
And besides me, no one.
