no matter how much rain may fall – a poem by Antoni Ooto

no matter how much rain may fall
 
you will get through this
leaning forward recalling spring
 
nudging a belief in growth and change —
favoring a fairness
 
like a monk who seasons a waiting field—
 
where all his hopes faithfully soak;
dropping seeds, while keeping that final vow.
 

Antoni Ooto is an internationally published poet and flash fiction writer.
Well-known for his abstract expressionist art, Antoni now adds his voice to poetry. Reading and studying the works of many poets has opened another means of self-expression. His recent poems have been published in Amethyst Review, The BeZine, Green Ink Poetry, The Poet Magazine, Brown Bag Online, The Wild Word, and many journals and anthologies.
He lives and works in upstate New York with his wife poet/storyteller, Judy DeCroce.
