Poetry Challenge Day 27: When the Storm Arrives

When the storm arrives where will you
be?

Where will you turn for shelter?

Who’s Arms will protect you from the wind?

When lightening strikes will you see?

We dance in the sunshine but can’t
withstand the rain.

Life is invigorated by the sun,

yes this is true,

but without the rain to cleanse us we can never be born anew.

When the storm winds blow will you

stand strong?

Or topple like the houses you’ve built with vanities.

Poetry Challenge Day 27: A Warm Whisper

A warm whisper.

A gentle caress.

Assurance that greatness can come from gentleness.

Exhaling self doubt,

Inhaling self love.

We rest in the knowledge that light has drawn us together,

and the depths of hell can not tear us apart.

Through sickness, pain and rain,

our joy is full because our love was built on the solid rock of divine timing.
