Rain Storm

Rain Storm 
Flash of lightening 
roll of thunder 
still I step out 
the sky is grey and moody
yet to me 
there is something
peaceful in it 

Another Roll of Thunder 
I feel the drops of rain 
first on the top of my head
then all over my body 
penetrating my clothes 
I am wet 
but I feel beautiful
Another Roll of Thunder 

I look into the sky
to feel the rain 
on my face 
to thank Heavenly Father
for the gift 
what others call disagreeable whether
I find joy and peace in 
Another Roll of Thunder 

I love the silence 
of a million rain drops
falling to the ground
hitting leaves 
along the way 
the storm has calmed
my storm within my soul
Another Roll of Thunder 

Some of my fellow beings 
look and stare 
at the girl walking in the rain 
with the serene smile 
though they do not 
know none can know
my secret the truth 
I walk in the rain because of him

The Silence Trilogy

These are some of my poems and a recent painting I did as a visual repersentation of my orginal poems. The Poems are all from my teen years and early twenties, however all very recently revised. So I hope you all enjoy

Shadows Of Silence 
I do not hide 
in ordinary shadows 
I hide in the shadow of silence
My own silence 
self consuming silence 
No one hears 
the words in my mind
words I would speak
yet no courage was I given
So I remain in the shadows of silence. 
The shadow of silence 
all consuming silence 
swallows my word 
my song my voice 
my smile my heart 
The shadows of silence 
has swallowed everything 
No light penetrates 
nothing penetrates 
my shadow of silence. 

The Sound Of Silence 
The sound of silence in my mind 
more deafening than a thousand screams 
waiting for words to trickle 
from the top of my mind 
to the tip of my pen 
where the ink will seep out
to the clean white sheet 
till it forms sentences 
and paragraphs 
until then the sound of silence
screams in my ears 
screaming the words 
unformed and unable to be 

There Is Silence Once Again
There is silence again 
consuming silence
light cannot penetrate 
the silence 
I am alone in the solemn night
no place to rest 
my weary head 
no hand 
to hold my lone hand 
will joy ever find me 
will my heart ever find 
a place to trust and love 
the silence
has come a fog deep 
upon my eyes 
within my soul I find darkness 
noting gets in or 
out from the silence
