Advent Poem 10

I am making an effort this advent to write a poem each day leading up to Christmas. So far I have 3 poems, but hey… it’s something! This one was inspired by a long walk where the clouds were threatening rain for so long and I was just waiting for them to burst.

pregnant precipatory promise

praising, piercing, pushing

bulging, bellowing billows

breaking boughs, bursting beauty

while we wait for weeping

we wear wonder wildly:

wanting

clouds cumulatively crying

carrying cases of

cooling coming

coming

coming

coming
