Rain is a Poem

Rain itself is a poem -
Sounds that are rhyming,
Rhythmic timing,
Dark and foreboding or sweet and endearing.
It can be touching and light, 
Or it may drench us like 
So many tears.

Short and sweet -
A cloud burst;
Or it may be the worst
Storm we have seen.

Interpreted differently,
It may leave a message,
Or with simply more inquiries.
Rain is a poem.

    1. I’m sorry, your comment went to my spam folder. Yes, I enjoyed the post. There are so many things in nature that are “double-sided” like that–fire, for example, can be beautiful, warming, hypnotic, and yet destructive, scorching, life-ending. The wind, the ocean, animals–all of these can be comforters or killers.
