Clear blue skies 

Wispy clouds passing by

All is calm, relaxed, collected.


But look! Here comes the dark grey kind 

The one that shrouds the mind

In darkness, rumination, struggle

Pain and loneliness.


Now the whole storm is upon me 

Raindrops pierce through me

Leaving gaping holes 

In both mind and soul.


Days and months pass by

Still shrouded in darkness

Still ruminating, still struggling


But suddenly a miracle,

Sunlight breaks through, embracing me

Blue skies are visible again  

Even though they were there all along.
