Whisper's

                                      WHISPER’S

April rain fell like whispers on grass,
Soft and light like a half felt apology.
Dark clouds wafted overhead in shamed silence.
Distressed by a cold winter’s return. 
Daffodils wept and bowed in fading despair,
My Father’s favourite plant was slipping away. 
As my Father had done and now my Mother too
Lost to a world of cold whispers and sorrow. 

Dead flowers I had placed on their grave so light
Were fading like a memory, a star un-bright.

Still the rain whispered but failed to cleanse,
The grit of sorrow that inhabits my heart.

I love the way you write, so far I noticed all your poems are about Mother Nature' ... this poem is deep and sad.... and still comes out with hope at the end. Much sorrow, can pour many rains.... enjoying all your poems so far. I have a few more to go. Hope you do not mind that I have enjoyed all your poems, and I have marked you as a favorite poet. always~ Linda

Linda thank you for your very generous and kind comments on my poems. I am flattered that you enjoyed them as I have enjoyed your poems so much. I do enjoy writing about nature as it frees and raises my spirits. I have so many of your poems to read yet but I will get to them all. Keep sharing your talent with us so we can all enjoy the wonder of feelings you capture in all your pieces.

Thank you again for reading and leaving a positive comment on another of my poems. Strangley it was a comfort writing this piece after loosing my parents even though I was in a lonely place it helped with the healing.
