A Sudden Storm

January 14, 2016 at 6:46 pm (poetry)

A Sudden Storm by Brenda Fletchall

suddenly, surprisingly
a torrential downpour

salty tears
in level 5 rapids
course through me
and out

harrowing through granite
features laid by old, old wounds and
solidified shrouds over past terrors and
… humiliations more recent

fresh floods of emotion
set me a tremble and
initiate tremors
beneath my stoic fa├žade

hallowing out sandstone
voids which should not be exposed
left raw, greenish in hue
queasy, i thrash and flounder

yes yes
i grieve the losses

i am fearful

suddenly i am not surprised
i understand the storm
i understand why
the necessary storm

my floundering eases.

i let go
allowing the storm
to rage and subside
in its necessary, and due, course

i allow the itch of remaining tremors
be soothed by the softening rain
breathing through it, with it,
my panic fades

this storm too will pass
as have others before it
one way or another
the storms have always passed

there will be other storms
… i hope i remember in their midst
this too will pass

one way or another
whether in sudden eruption
or a slow steamy monsoon

a storm, as with a life, will always pass
