The sun inched out today after five days of rain
bursting light everywhere
even underneath
and I felt my mood lighten
and joy crept in where tears had furrowed their rows earlier
and love opened its doors wide
and I stepped inside

  1. I've been reading bout all that rain.
    But we need rain to better appreciate the sunshine

    1. Thanks Rick--when the sun is out I always feels better although I love the rain!

  2. smiles...beautiful....its wonderful when that cloud passes isnt it...and the sun so warm it lifts the mood...of course love as well makes all the difference...i would enter its house as well...

  3. Love this! I miss the sun so deeply when it is hidden for days. The sunshine changes everything.

  4. I love when the rain leaves too and am so not a fan of the cold, nasty weather either. So I loved reading this Audrey!!

  5. The sun will do that, when it reappears after all the gray. I especially admire "love opened its doors wide and I stepped inside". Yay!

  6. I love the effect of the sun. Beautiful poem!

  7. Beautiful Audrey.

    Natures sure plays hide and seek with us and man is so intelligent to put it in fine words.

    Loved it!!

  8. Wonderful poem! I think about how the winter months can be rather dreary where I live and when spring comes it's exactly as you describe here. hehe. Lovely poem!

  9. Oh I can so relate to this. I'm a basket case after 2 days of rain, I can't imagine 5! You described the effect the sun has perfectly.

  10. Sweet!

    Rain is good, but the sun returning does refresh (but you said it WAY more beautifully and poetically, of course.)


  11. This is beautiful, Audrey. So often the appearance of sun can work miracles on one's mood.

  12. Love that picture but.. your poem rocks.

  13. We all need a little sun in our lives, poets roam in the darkness often looking for it.

  14. I can totally relate to this poem!
    We finally have a little sun today after many many gloomy days..

  15. Such a wonderful reflection and stirring words.

  16. Beautiful! The words and the photo. Loved this.
