Storm Clouds

Dark clouds in sweeping strokes
painted in streaks on sky's horizon
blending shades of gray
upon which sunshine plays
its melody
as gloom descends
for a storm is blowing in again

and even there
upon the canvas of the sky
a dissonance arises
while the wind picks up the cries
uneasy, from the birds who fly
back home

and spirit, resonance of all that is
imbues the atmosphere
with a quiet calm
before the storm's unleashed

Then does soul portray reality?
and simply reassure
that even tempests pass
as the storm clouds that amass
just drift away
