after the rain

After the rain
in that single
moment of quiet
before birds
remember to sing
all the wonder
of all the world
rests in potential—

magic waiting for release.

Shout out to Robert Lee Brewer of Poetic Asides for the prompt, which is also the title of this piece.

I like this poem very much, Brenda. So very true that:

"all the wonder
of all the world
rests in potential--"

By the way, I put your blog in my 'blogroll' I hope you don't mind. (If you do, I can remove it. LOL.) Thanks for being such a regular visitor to my blog!
