Something I penned after a prolonged period of ill health.


TODAY
Today the rain falls in torrents,
Fierce wind strips the trees
Of autumn tinged leaves.
The sky is grey,
The countryside dull grey-green.


Today my legs work, my arms work.
I have eaten well.
My thoughts are lucid.
I am content.
It is a beautiful day.

I can so empathise with this piece, as I too have been there. If health is good..especially after illness..it is a BEAUTIFUL day! This illustrates the feeling well. I like the use of colour to further illustrate this! Love, Diana.

Susan, this is a good piece on contrasts and it is thought provoking. I understand what you were going for with the different colored fonts, but some of the lines are barely readable on my system.

Susan:

This is so great. I like the contrast in each stanza. The first stanza lead the audience to think this was a bad day; and yet even though it was a bad day to others, it was a good day for you because you because your arms and legs work.

This poem can be read in sooo many ways. You can read it as an uplifting poem; but then again, when I think of it, you're only thinking it was a great day because your arms and legs work on this day. Then what about the other days that they supposedly didn't work??? Were you hinting this?

I'm sorry, when I read a poem, I'd like to read the poem in more than one ways, it just make poetry all the more interesting.

I love this poem. It says volume. Your feelings are well-expressed in a few words.

May Lu a.k.a. Sandie Angel :o)
