Jack Scott writes

A Sorely Troubled Sky

Within a grey, forbidding sky, 

despite the icy, piercing rain 
driven by the lashing wind, 
through that dark and gloomy shroud 
a dazzling shaft of sun 
broke through 
as swift as lightning from another storm, 
lingering, but an instant there 
yet staying as an image in my eye. 
The closest I can come in words for it 
is peace amid a sorely troubled sky.
