“Mother Nature” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Mother Nature”

By Ashley O’Hare

When the summer rain

drums against my windshield,

I turn down the music

and allow myself to feel.

How fascinating

are human emotions?

We self inflict more pain

than a villain’s potions.

If only my brain

could better protect itself.

If only Mother Nature

could lend a hand to help.

The sun’s rays eventually

seeped into my pores.

The sudden sweetness

shook me to my core.

Two years of gradual healing

came to a head

like a gas tank filling.

So I let the rain

consume the thoughts

that would otherwise

drive me insane.
