falling upwards

A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto


falling upwards

 

 

placate the soreness

amazing grace

the sky blue

is your view

 

looking up at the down

the blessing to have had you around

 

clouds align

in line

kerchiefs clutched for tears

 

there is rain in February.

Sorry about that..Peace
Blue rain, as I picture it. A good cry helps sometimes. Washing us from within. Letting the soreness ease. I loved your words here.

Memories are such untimely things, bringing unseasonal rain....Sometimes it feels as if all of Nature conspires to make us weep. I certainly teared up, reading this poem, my friend. Wishing you lots of smiles today.....

You're welcome
Yes, there has been much rain in February and snow too. I find these words so relatable. They remind me of my brother in law's passing. It was so good to have him around. Touching write Jacob. Pierces the heart's defences.

Yes, there is Rain and a bit of Icy Snow in February.
We could use Feet like the Birds who never have trouble slipping off branches of Ice. They seem to Ice Skate on the Snow as if they were in a Disney Show. When we retire-- it seems we are always looking up-- wondering what Secrets the Sky has written today...
behind the dark grey clouds of February. Learning how to dance around the house as if we were a
Broadway Star. Be Brave and keep looking up.
tenderly, Pat
