Grey clouds lifting

Grey clouds lifting

Air moving gently
           through the air
and then a sudden gust
           and then all still
and still the rain falling
           seeping into the earth
into the empty earth
           from which the rosebushes
have been lifted :
           they will return in spring
along with light and colour
           and dreams and all kinds
of fresh aspirations
           and where we have failed
we will try again
           and where we succeed
we will celebrate
           what it is to know beauty
and to know love
           and to live in joy
