Yesterday, as dawn rose over Diamond Head
All the trees remained in silk screen silhouette as
My furrowed brow expressed in my features
Troubles that had yet to materialize, yet how real they
Seemed, how surreal my vision of the loss.
So I cast my net to keep from entering too deep,
Far enough to keep the fears at bay, far
Away from the harsh hemp at noon day.
Now, as sunlight seeps through misty clouds
It feels surreptitiously suspicious as in nature;
Looks as if the clouds are gathering gloom,
As if they are purposely trying to conceal,
Though in their dark grey, a rainbow.
They're moving fast upon the current.
Here below as in the sky, they cry
To release in their wet, a catharsis which helps me
Stay centered on a path leading toward the light.
Oh how I love the freedom the rain expresses.
I love the musical sound, the serene scent.
Believe you have the courage to overcome and
In doing so, the power of the heavens will erase
Yesterday, and flood today with sublime sunshine.
