Dear April

Dear April

your moods switch so soon

One minute you part clouds

and shower down sunshine

upon petals open in bloom

A moment later you stop

and tug curtains tightly shut

to rain down torrents

of melancholy drip drop

and broken trust

~

Dear April

I understand your way

the need to shut down

and hide behind the gray

where smiles fade

to melancholy drip drop

while we hope and wait

for our faith to trade

 these tears and thorns

 for jewels on a crown

transformed.

 They lay their crowns before the throne and say:

“You are worthy , our Lord and God,

to receive glory and honor and power,

for you created all things,

and by your will they were created

and have their being.”

Revelation 4:10-11

I live in a temperate rainforest region.

It’s a temperamental place

where the weather changes its mind

in the time it takes me to don my walking shoes and coat.

Life is like that too.

But grace rains down on us—lots of it.

And God is so good—always.

What’s the climate like at your place?

Keeping a personal  journal helps me sort out

the moodiness of life.
