I’m in the rainy season of my life
Each day storm clouds gather
threateningly in the dark sky above

Rainfall in light misting then heavy sheets fall,
Big snowflakes appear midair and disappear on the wet pavement
This is the beginning of my winter of content, I’m not sure yet

The sky simmers red in between imminent storms
then mingles with purple after sundown
Upheaval seems the norm today

Tomorrow brings warm southern winds
leaving again a shimmering steel gray sky
bringing calm in its wake as I begin the winter of my content


  1. Warm Southern winds aren't always all their cracked up to be.

    Bring on the winter for me.

    And more of Joy's poems.

    P.S. Did I ever mention I peeked in the window of Dylan Thomas' writing shed and thought it a place I could really get used to, (With baccarat lounger and laptop, of course.)

  2. "winter of content..."

    love it!

  3. There's a lot here I can really relate to, enjoyed reading this the past few days, thanks!!
