30-Day Poetry Challenge: Day 30

Well, here we are, 30DPC. The end of this year’s line. I’ll miss you, but look forward to doing this again next April!

Day 30 – In the End: Write a poem that begins with something ending.

After the rain,
when the droplets 
have long since dried
and no longer plink
off the air conditioner
or drip from the trees,
when the ground has 
sucked up all the moisture
and the sun emerges 
from behind the clouds,
and there is light at the end of the tunnel,
life begins anew
and hope is restored,
and plans are made,
and we move closer 
to that two-bedroom downtown.
