Hollow

Hollow
©Jean Esther

In this space
Where water burns
And fire freezes

Nothing makes sense
Nothing seems worth

Not time nor effort
Not sweat nor toil

To moods that swing
And tantrums boil
Pay no heed
Become fresh soil

Hearts expand
Minds blown
Body torn
Souls grown

Deep within
Hollowed out
Seek and find
Grace of the Divine

Rain is a Four Letter Word

Rain is a Four Letter Word

Whenever it rains, I feel so free
Free as a bird, rain is my life

Washing away my troubles
Quenching my sun baked soul

While others rush for cover
I stroll among the empty streets
The rain dancing upon my lips

Looking up at the gray clouds
I open my mouth to catch the rain
Laughing at the silliness of it

Whenever I am sad
The rain hides my tears,
And soothes me with
The fresh clean air

The soft pitter-patter on my window
Lulls me to sleep as it sings its lullaby

I let out a sigh
As I wave goodbye
To the departing clouds
The sun shining through

Until next time rain
For now I bid thee
Adieu
