The Calm before the Storm

The Calm before the Storm

A Poem by Patricia Wedel
"

A quiet day in May

"
Mid morning on a Wednesday when baby birds begin to chirp 
The red cherries are ripe for Pie and the flowers sing a lullaby... 
Kittens sigh and purr on pillows of clouds as seen in the Mind's eye... 
The Storm can wait for afternoon Showers as the Sky may turn grey 
Mothers untie their Aprons and enjoy a Siesta before the Children 
return from school with their Lessons embedded in memory... 
Fathers are working and looking forward to a home cooked meal 
fit for a King and Queen with a Royal family thankful for a 
Shelter from a Storm as Shingles on the Roof will protect their Home.   
Pheasants fly silently over Fields of Corn and Wheat...  Blessings Indeed.

Indeed it never fails to amaze me how the local fauna seem to sense an oncoming storm and make ready accordingly long before us humans, and here you show the very nature of such an event through poetic imagery and discriptive visuals, beautifully penned dear Patricia, blessings indeed!

This is a bedrock poem based on family, meals together and enjoying all the blessings of God; Small blessings to me are as rich as large blessings if we are thankful with much gratitude.
I'm thankful you write poetry that inspires.

Wow! All wonderful. You are welcome Patricia.
a vivid and colorful show of a day in the life of....... beginning with baby birds chirping away in the early morn....fruit is ripe to make a pie for the upcoming dessert.....daily outside life goes until the clouds gather and decide to create a thunder storm....then everyone scurries to their home or nest where a delicious meal is awaiting......lovely dear Pat

Is it to many cherries before I go to sleep, never never land unless I can escape realizing, not a child but a man who now plant corn and wheat so i can fill my belly.

Yeah of life , thanks for your input. Sorry for the typo in my last comment. Good writing.
Sometimes we have to learn to be thankful for the small blessing that we have in this life and the natural treasures that lie before us.

I love the whole story in this poem and how the house is shelter and protection from the storm.
