Written about the loss of my mom. Published in Mad Swirl. http://madswirl.com/poetry/2015/06/thunder/


those days spent gliding through the streets

rubber on concrete and distant laughter

with the sun bearing down on our backs

you once told me you loved me

on a trip to an infamous amusement park

shortly before your sickness began

we saw funny hats and there were no long faces

then it came like a landslide

your steps grew slower and each breath more hoarse

and on a night where the sky opened wide

the rain fell like thunderous sorrow

your smile echoed through my screaming soul

This is so beautuful! You have personified pain into words. There are few things as painful to a young daughter as the untimely loss of a beloved mother. Your writing is strong and passionate
An excellent poem.
