After the Storm

After the Storm
Jim Gibson

The soil is black and soft from the rain.
The loss of the sky is the farmer’s gain.
The clouds are gone and the rainbow glistens,
All is quiet, even the sparrow listens.
Why the earth’s so quiet no man can tell,
But the one who reads, mark this well;
The next time after the storm and thunder,
And nature has been loosed in fiery plunder,
Hear the sound that comes from the world.
There is only silence that’s been unfurled.
