Storm Clouds

Storm Clouds

A Poem by Lisa
"

Poem with a chuckle

"

As the storm clouds gather
we walk the lonely shore
trudging along ,dragging our feet
inches apart, feeling much more
I stumble and you reach out to catch me
but quickly draw away when I steady myself
the gulf ever widening between us
glancing around the darkening landscape
gloomy and dangerous thoughts
try to take over my melancholic mind
matching the scene in front of my eyes,
a sudden gust of wind caught me unaware
launching my hat high in the air
I watched it twist and turn
flying free like a beautiful bird
moving skyward ,then falling
downward like a pretty coloured feather
a giggle caught me unware
followed by a chuckle
as the wind let go
and dumped it out at sea
then it began to rain
not a gentle trickle,
or a light sprinkle
but a deluge, a torrent,
as the clouds burst
and emptied on our heads
caught up in the scene
both laughing, caught unaware
holding each other as the laughter
overtook us ,we looked into
each others eyes
anguish and worry
forgotten and forgiven
as we turned and walked
towards home hand in hand
smiling happily at each other.

Humor has gotten me through so many moments...and it has often repaired damaged or diminished feelings.
Sharing a laugh is the best medicine.
I like your writing...you give us descriptions that make us feel we are walking along with you, almost invading the speaker and subject's privacy.
