When It Rains – Author Jody Austin

 

Her

Tears

Be

Tsunami

Waves

Crashing down her face

Monsoon be brewing in her heart

 

If he can stand her Tsunami

Her cup is full. Eyes leak.

Broken levies flood from her ducts

Her dam has exploded she’s weary

Pressured from being strong over time

The pillars of crowns are absent

Her Faith Ascending over the Heavens

Jody About the Author

Jody’s mother was and is still a poet and artist who introduced her to poetry and expressive writing as a child in elementary school. Her bed time stories were of Nikki Giovanni, Sonia Sanchez, Marcus Garvey, Phylis Wheatley, Langston Hughes, Paul Lawrence Dunbar, Chavez, Gil Scott Heron, Khalil Gibran, The Last Poets, and many others. She  was a classically trained musician in the earlier part of her life, and performed with different bands and ensembles. Coming from a family background of music it was in her blood.  Her aunt was a jazz singer who performed with many of the greats that include Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie ‘Yard Bird’ Parker. There was always a jam session going on. All of these influences started Jody’s creative writing experiences as a child and throughout her adulthood.
