As I Lay, Here

Gentle windpaths brush my skin,
or touch the trees;
As I lay, here.

Raindrops cry down shadowed walls,
or outside panes;
As I lay, here.

Greying stormclouds dance within,
or mar the sky;
As I lay, here.

Sunlight beams ‘gainst bedroom halls,
or ‘gainst the world;
As I lay, here.

Storms without and storms within,
all in my mind;
As I lay, here.

    I really like this. Truly. It’s like listening to waves come onto shore. Anthology, anyone?

    The weather here was almost this…it was quite nice.

    (And an equally nice, pleasant poem!)

      Thank you! Coincidentally, I wrote it during fair weather, and published during foul.

    I think storms can happy when one is sleep deprived. Oh, and it can rain outside too 🙂
    Rest when you can 😉
