    Idle Thoughts

    Sitting here i wonder, I ponder the meaning,
    As the sun shines brightly upon this place,
    I soon realize this thought takes a turn,
    Like a plot it has designs on my peace,
    Slowly I notice a few gray clouds head my way,
    The thoughts twist and turn, Roll over in my brain,
    Clouds now block the sun, Dark and sinister,
    Still I am deep in thought trying to explain,
    A wind creeps upon my hill, Runs through my hair,
    Tries to mess with my mind, Try as it might to no avail,
    My course is set my thoughts are firm as is my belief,
    As I feel the first drops of rain upon my face, I look upward,
    I see the turmoil, The confusion in the darkness,
    The rain comes down hard as the wind yells in my ears,
    The very ground on which i sit once dry is now drenched,
    A loud clap of thunder followed by a bolt of lightning,
    So close I swear i could touch, another explosion,
    Again and again as if to knock me off my hill,
    Then darkness....................

    Walking along the shore, white sand between my toes,
    Sun shining bright, bringing me back to life,
    My thoughts at peace, my cares to the breeze,
    I survived the storm to find my peace,
    The turmoil and torment has faded away,
    Like the last wisp of a faraway cloud,
    That too is beyond my vision,
    For i see what is now, far wiser then I was before....

    I really like this poem and can relate to what you're saying. But it seems as though something is missing, perhaps the moment or process of transformation...when the storm passes or the how of surviving it. You give the result, but not the wisdom gained that achieved it.

    There are times we must travel a lengthy backroad to reach the highway. Great write.

    A moment in time.A moment to remember.A deep emotion.A renewell.

    Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
