Rainy Day Poems by Sylvia Yoon Kim

1.

Beautiful hearts are made

More beautiful

When the world

Is black and blue

 

When tears fall

Into drops of gold

While staring at the sun

And finger tips no longer burn

 

Can you hear the wings

Of souls yet alive

Of voices like soldiers

And saints on earth

 

The power of a girl

Heart of diamonds

Mind not yet torn

And eyes sore still see

 

Beautiful smiles

Amidst muted fear

 

Raise your head up

Little marvelous one

 

2.

Elemental force of wisdom

Unobjectively rooted in reality

 

Greater than

Greater than

 

Wind moving mountains

Rains raising oceans

 

Sway

 

Away with me

Feed my roots with

Greater than

Greater than

Wisdom

 

Love

Kiss me with your mind

Melt my hands to joy

Touch my life away

 

Greater than

 

The oceans raging

Above our bodies

 

Let’s wade in delight

And be free

 

3.

Rainy days

Of pavement and bliss

 

StringsΒ and breathing fire

Seashores and warmth

 

Of breezes reassuring

Our hearts of the senses

 

Skin freckled by the laughter

Simplicity of rain

 

I dream of you

The days you held my hand

 

Teen dreams

Tangled hair
