Raining Day

It is raining.
Making the day
cold and gloomy.
Then
sun comes from
the back of the clouds,
tearing the clouds.
Sunlight shines on the ground.
All the seeds in the soil
start to stick out their heads
to face the sunlight.
White and brown branches
start to take out green colors
from inside of their bodies.
The day is turning bright
and so am I.
The clouds that brought eternal sadness
to my heart,
the clouds that filled my heart
are floating away,
away from my heart.
Instead
sunlight is filling
my heart.
Sunlight brings jubilant happiness.
Gray and cold winter
is all gone and
a whole new spring is coming.
A new beautiful world
is beginning.
But
I open my eyes.
The clouds are coming fast
and sunlight is leaving fast.
Eternal sadness fills
my heart again.
Watching the raindrops,
I realize
I was dreaming.
It is raining.
