Rain!

rain falling

This is a poem I wrote a while ago. Using it now is probably wishful thinking as the last few days have been so hot I would actually welcome a bit of cooling rain right now.

Rain

Curtain of water,
Familiar blanket of wetness,
Grey skied creator of puddles,
Stealer of the sun;
Drowning warmth in your cold dampness,
Sliding over the street and dripping from drainpipes.
Nature’s percussion
Playing on the ground.

  1. I’m definitely ready for some “cooling dampness” as it’s over 90 today. Sigh. I liked the poem but I’m less enamored of rain after living in Oregon where it begins raining sometime in September and stops sometime in May. 🙂
