Just A Poem

I realized that I have shared many of my photos with you. One of my passions, other than photography, is writing. Although, I have to admit, I have drifted away from my writing. I'm not quite sure why that has happened, but writing for me is not something that can be forced. I cannot just 'decide' that I'm gong to write more - I write when I am inspired or when I have the 'need' - I say the 'need' because writing is an outlet for me. Maybe that's it - I've been 'writing', just not with pen and paper.

Anyway, my blog seems to not be generating any interest lately. That's ok, I'm not complaining. I'll just take this time to post one of my poems.

LIFE'S LESSONS

After the rain,
comes the rainbow.
After the darkness,
comes the light.

After the thunder and lightning,
there are clear skies,
and dawn always follows
the night.

Now, after my tears,
there are smiles.
After my losses,
there are gains.

After my mistakes,
I have found some wisdom.
I have gained strength,
as a result of my pain.

I have discovered,
from life's trials and lessons,
that I am merely learning to live,
and living to learn.

The let downs are just to
give me strength
to survive
all of life's turns.

After the let downs,
there is joy.
After the worst,
there is the best.

I must remember,
when this world gets me down,
that life's little trials
just prepare me for the rest.

Very very nice!

I like reading poetry that I can understand. My husband also writes poems and most of the time I have to ask him what it was about.
