Throwback Friday – Cold Winter Rain by Liyona

Today’s serene sunshine

Left the cold winter rain

To breathe anew

With every fresh wind 

That whipped against

My skin


I left the house

Hopeful to find a new


In the wintry wilds

Of the great outdoors


Far above

In the clear blue oceans

Where wisps and feathers

Fly free

The black eyes

Of a soaring siren

Stole a glance

My way.


Every day 

On this planet earth

I am always amazed

At the seeming


Of the lovely living

Things that 

Inhabit this place.

Liyona is an “average joe” kind of writer who likes to think about ordinary things and then write them down. Ever since she can remember, she has been rhyming words and creating lyric poems. During her college years, she took a more serious bent toward writing and started to post on her blog (The Life and Times of a Quirky Character). Currently, she resides on the East Coast of the United States just north of the country’s capital. Liyona’s prose have been published in Visual Verse, Flora Fiction, Spillwords, Free Verse Revolution, The Anthropocene Hymnal and The Beautiful Stuff Poetry Anthology.
