After the Storm

by Hilen Letiro

The storms may come And limbs may break;
Yet others bend Beneath the weight
Of heavy rain And windy breeze…
A storm can mark The strongest trees.

After the storm 2.

Life sometimes deals With us this way;
In unseen trials We meet each day.
It’s not how much our bodies break
Or how much they may bend;
It’s Our Outlook In Our Own Life
That helps our spirits mend!

  1. So sad to see trees broken – recently walked in a woodland and many of the limbs had to be removed.
    Liked the poem – you must have a good Anthology of poetry

  2. Oh, what brutal imagery. Nature must do its own culling, to be sure, but it sure can be sad to see the trees so devastated. Still, rebirth is already in process. This was never more evident to me than now as I watch the tulips poke their noses through the soil following three months covered in three inches of ice and mountains of snow. … Lovely sentiments in the poem. Be well, Dorothy 🙂
