Search for meaning

By: James G. Piatt


After the spring gales have
vanished, after the
prevailing winds faded into
the lead gray horizon,
downy white clouds
scudding noiselessly with
heavy sodden loads drop
their burdensome weight
In lush pastures far below:

Storm tossed seeds rooted
in the damp earth begin to
Grow under the plentiful sun.
Yellow, and brilliant, the
Sun’s rays topple from the
heavens, leaving a soft,
warm blanket on the earth,
lying down the platform
for the entrance of multi-
colored flowers, and
peaceful hours of summer.
