Darkening storm clouds hover.
May your eyes see the gloom
and capture the silver lining.
A blanket from the blistering sun.
The thunder rumbles low, long.
May you hear the threatening growl
and marvel at its energetic pulse
that matches your own.
Birdsong on breeze
may the sound offer a song in your heart
as rain cleanses the day.
Arching through the gloomy sky
is a painter’s palette splash of wishes:
may you have passion in all you do
and the perseverance to follow through.
may you have friendship among those
you once counted as foes.
may you have courage in conundrums
growth beneath the grim,
and the strength in sadness.
may you have wisdom to wrestle the whys
and wit in strife.
Among all, the openness
to behold the beauty
and the grace
to weather any storm.
