Written for: dVerse – “Rein ’em in!” (posted by Lillian)
“We’re all ready to rein in Mother Nature….say whoa there…slow down!! Bring her to a stand still and let the sun shine, the winds calm to a gentle breeze and the ocean stop raging. Our hearts ache for those devastated by these recent weather-related disasters.
So the word(s) for today’s poetics: rain, rein, or reign. You must use one, two, or, if you’re feeling particularly adventurous with your pen today, all three of these words within the body of your poem. AND the additional caveat (added direction) is that your post must have a positive bent to it.”
If Mother Nature
deigns to rain
nothing can be done to stop her.
When a drought reigns
earth is cracked,
parched, water use limited.
We all fall victim
to whims of Mother Nature,
yet she has provided us with great beauty.
We need to rein in our anger,
dry our tears, and help
each other to survive the storms of life.
