White Mountain Ash


Had just a quick glance at the prompt early this morning, then  a busy, busy day in the high 80's with scorching sunlight...  Hours upon hours later, I sit here trying to let all of the busy moments rinse away with thoughts of rain and this wonderful prompt.....

Mag 60 at Magpie Tales

Dim darkened clouds, angered skies sash,
Holding your tears well into the night,
Greying worlds collide.
Tensions well beneath holding too tight,
Thundering voices, lightning crash.

Drenching moments bathe in a flash,
Rinsing free tender hearts of sunlight,
Colorful worlds pride.
Emerging seeds blossom within sight,
Rising wonders, white mountain ash.

Stormy skies abide,
Colors rising stride,
Timbers reaching, white mountain ash.

Serene and intense..

I viewed a phase come in, create jumps and then go..

Eventually everything passes by with some patience n courage..
