    "He bindeth up the waters in his thick clouds; and the cloud is not rent under them." (Job 26:8 )

    My tears are bound in my heavy emotions held in the balloon of my head,
    I heard a poetess spit about rain and it clicked, I know it's just like she said.

    I scope out horror, but I have no fear it's outlined in each book that I've read,
    It's never the rain, it is good to you, it's the clouds we must learn to dread.

    "Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him,..." (Revelation 1:7)

    It weighs heavy on my sun, love extinguished by a flood of much wet,
    Afraid to stay to scared to run, realizing this is as good as it gets.

    A wonderful sight to see a sun rising, but don't despair just because it also sets,
    when you do your best while in the light in darkness you will have no regrets.

    " The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits." ( Ecclesiastes 1:6-7)

    Oh what a storm, a cyclone of emotion created from the movement of my soul,
    a slow leak in the bucket Eliza said Henry, a huge crack in the picture window.

    If the balloon holds the pressure, let it free & bust it gently, just use a sharp pin though.
    Better yet just watch the leaves this life has sent me, as they go which ever way the wind blows...

    Very nice flow Sister Lrae
    It is the sun that will shine
    Light and dark days sorrow and tears
    Is it the elements of the wind
    clouds stir across us all
    Dont fear the darkness that comes
    Welcome the rain
    after it clears
    Grow in each turbulence
    Stir of the wind in life
    The newness and fresh starts are wonderful​

    Beautiful assessment! I wrote this after my sister, my best friend passed in 2012. Truly the end of the world for me that year, but this year I have my first grand sun....the rain has cleared and he shines!

    Thank You for sharing with us.
    My condolences and blessed prayers are with you Sister Lrae

    My mother passed last October.
    The lost last a life time. I find comfort from the memories and the last conversation I had with my mother the day before she passed.

    Twice since October I have dreamed about her and actually we were passing in hallways and it was so powerful.
    She was so beautiful and looked so at peace. I reached out in both instances and touched her arm.
