Stormy Whether



      shattered skies,
      the flooded garden,
      sundered rosebush,
      scattered leaves,
      demolished barn,
      dismantled fences

  or discover

      shafts of sunlight,
      fog dissolving,
      calming breezes,
      birds returning,
      horses spared,
      rainbow glowing.
