Circles Within Circles

Even the drunkard is momentarily
lifted from stumbling stupor as world
shifts and the prophet is born.

Bound and silenced expectations
begin to slowly attach themselves
to awakening reality.

Thunder trumps pounding rain at edge
of sleepy awareness as hope blooms for all
that might be mended.

    After a week of rain, you’ve made me think of all those rain from a different angle. Perhaps when it’s all done, the world will be mended? Thank goodness one can always hope!
