A Glimmer, A Shine

blue skies fade
give way to woe
as soft raindrops fall
upon my face, eager
to wash away my dismay
I say a prayer, ask for peace
to rid my soul of despair and grief
and through stormy clouds a glimmer, a shine
a beam of hope, peeking through dreary skies
the spirited sun, wielding the light
banishing away the drab blues
and in their place, saving grace
tiny seeds pushing through
the saturated
earth, giving birth
to new growth
from sun’s
