For FOWC: Terrible (but hopefully not a terrible poem) and I also included yesterday’s FOWC: Bundle. I also was inspired by the Saturday Mix: Double Take this week, even though I didn’t respond exactly to the prompt. Shared with this week’s Writers’ Pantry.
The windowpanes of glass are cold,
Gray clouds are heavy and cannot hold
The rain inside, which falls with weight
Oppressive, as if pain can’t wait.
Each sky-tear is a bundle of emotion,
Slowly let go and set in motion.
Tearing the sky, lightning zings —
Another’s presence lessens the sting:
A voice to comfort and hand to hold,
As if bundled against the cold.
