Weathering the storm

A cat amongst the pigeons

A shard beneath the sand

Fanned flames of discontentment

Doused into the ground.


Wild rivers of betrayal

Begin to flow with calm.

Beyond the dark horizon

Stars begin to form.


A bridge that once was broken

Is carefully restored.

The raging storm’s subsiding

In time for a new dawn.


Daybreak brings restitution

The sun’s not far away

The radiant atonement

Turns darkness into day.

    For me, this poem reflects an unusual week with peaks and troughs more extreme than usual.

    A week comprising of funerals, interviews and the continuing journey along that ever-rocky road to publishing.
