MERCY
(a shadorma)

Yesterday’s
storms have passed; today
I’m washed clean,
basking in
the warmth of a new daybreak,
wrapped in promises.

    1. I felt like the painting had a nice mood to it–the cleanness, the sunshine and yellow, a cloudless sky. Glad my words captured the mood as “nice”, as well. And thank you for the feedback on the title! 🙂

      1. Yes, absolutely. It stands on its own without the painting. And the idea of a metaphorical storm comes through – and the comfort in all those “w” words after the storm.
