after the storm,
a sun ray illuminates my heart-
floating on clouds
follow the rainbow
into the heights of the sky-
bent but not broken;
human nature as strong as trees
fallen autumn leaves-
pines still dressed in green;
clear sky, a new day
home nestled in the woods-
grateful for warmth and safety
in the midst of nature
My dear friends, it has been a rough week in New York because of the storm. I have been home with my husband as there have been power outages, and offices and roads have been closed. Luckily, we and our families are safe and grateful. Our prayers are for everyone in New York and our neighbor states who suffered losses and damages. Restoration has been underway, and we hope that all will be back to normal soon.
This morning, it was the first time I was able to go out and get some fresh air. I went to the rooftop of our building and took these photographs of the sky and country scenery surrounding us. The photos inspired my haiku on nature, the sky, and rainbows.
Thank you to all my blogger friends and readers who checked on me to make sure I was OK during the storm. I hope everyone on the East Coast is safe and recouping well. Welcome new followers and friends. Have a wonderful weekend!
