Tears displace the mask that hides our pain so that healing can find us & renew our perspective revealing truth!

Celestial lights/
long past twilight/
loose turmoil/
on my dreams/
rain clouds let flow/
bounty below/
on thirsty latent seed/
torrential blasts/
displace the mask/
and somber thoughts recall/
how lightning flashed across the sky/
electrified my soul/
thunderous applause/
I call/
Sky bright & crystal clear/
I smell it/
the day brand new/
my mind does grasp it too

The use of nature to portray ones own emotions, is a very clever and refreshing way of putting words into a delightful and satifying write. This work is very skilfully done and I congratulate you for it flows beautifully.

You are becoming more and more skilled in adding together visuals, poetic sense and music to your writing. This one has all three.
Reviewed by Jerry Bolton 9/27/2012
Brava is the word for this gem, Shirley. Truth. A commodity found lacking so much these day, but clearly within the framework of this refreshing poem it has been found and admired for what it is.
