"So, here’s the skinny: I’ve been thinking about writing and how often our perfectionism gets in the way of our words. And I figured, why not take 5 minutes and see what comes out: not a perfect post, not a profound post, just five minutes of focused writing." ~Gypsy Mama

what happens when the rain is tears

and the storm is personal

what happens when you can't see clearly

you can't think clearly

when the storm comes out of the middle of no where

when the lightning strikes

when the thunder rolls

what happens when the storm is out of control

where do you hide

where do you turn

it is times like these that i seem to revert to old habit

 but i am fighting that old self

i am trying to look up

even though the rain is pouring in my face

and i am terrified of the lightning

i am looking up

looking up to Him who can hold me, comfort me, keep me safe

i may not see clearly yet

but i will...when the rain is gone


  1. This is so beautiful. Poignant. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Oh this might be my favorite 5-minute poem. And the graphic is beautiful. And now that song is in my head. I loved this one . Thanks for the encouragement.

  3. Reminds me of Psalm 121:1, "I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come?". Beautiful writing today my friend.

  4. Thank you, friend! Sometimes the words come easier when the one word prompt touches a piece of home! Still trying to see clearly but I know which direction to look!!
