after the rain came

the sun, in the azure sky

turned brown into green

He has made everything beautiful in its time.

dormant, not dead.

For you will go out with joy and be led forth with peace; The mountains and the hills will break into shouts of joy before you, And all the trees of the field will clap their hands.

some are elastic

others are made of plastic

will we stretch, or snap?

If you falter in a time of trouble, how small is your strength!

does not argue with the wind

and yet it survives.
