There is a place
Shed tears become raindrops
Golden sunshine’s gleam never burns
Your face
Dark grief is overcome with joy
Colorful flowers bloom
Fed by fresh rain

  1. Oh those tears, Linda. I love that you have ‘Shed’ and Fed’ rhyming at the start of the lines and the circular feel conveyed by ‘Somewhere’!

  2. Lovely words, Linda, so gentle. Funny but the first (and only) poem I ever submitted to the real toads prompt began with the exact words you use. I got bawled out for plagiarism, a couple of abusive comments, and the link was removed. That’s why I’ve never been back. Must have been a bad day for someone.

  4. Looking this, Linda.
    One of two places I’ve found:
    1. Where lost things are (kudos to the new Mary Popins movie we took youngest granddaughter); or
    2. Somewhere over the rainbow. That I’ve also found (search my other blog).
    Lovely, Linda

  5. Lovely, positive–beautiful thoughts of a somewhere.
    In regard to the comments above, I did think of the song “Somewhere” from West Side Story–but just in the way that things tend to remind me of songs–not plagiarized. 🙂 Audra McDonald does a beautiful version of the song.
