After Rain, the Rainbow

Billowing, sunless-grey expanse
Flooding my miserable soul
Oh Sadness, filling up my doubt
Drowning every hopeful thought
Soaking barren desert land
Emptiness, Oh my soul

Gathering clouds of celestial vapor
Washing my abundant dread
Rivulet streams flow peaceful, quiet
Away, my darkest mindful thoughts
Rushing down to churning ocean
Emptiness, Oh my soul

Topaz sky break forth
Over emerald hills
Ruby, amber, golden arcs
Fill my hopelessness
Creamy rays of happy light
Glowing warmth of fire-heat
Filling up my soul

Ignite the dreams that dying lay
In the graveyard of my doubt
Arise, my Soul,
Leap. For joy outshines my desperate gloom
Spark the fire-stoked energy
That reads dread doubt’s firm eulogy
Today the clouds have parted

After rain, the rainbow


About Julia

Welcome! I'm so glad you stopped by. My name is Julia. I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a teacher, and most recently, a writer. Above all, I am a daughter of the King. I am constantly amazed at God's goodness in my life; undeserved and unlimited. Come sit and visit awhile. The teapot's always on the stove.
