"Listening To The Rain..."

"Listening To The Rain..."

A Poem by Chris
"

...we do that don't we...

"

We don't always know how we'll react to a "voice", a sound, thoughts …perceptions… or even a …now.

 

 

“Listening To The Rain…”

 

So many whispers echo behind the eyes,

wishes soft of future past

and tomorrow's never come -

and silly lil tears that burn

and meander round-and-around

and around -

a silence so vast

that the echoes…

the echoes …cry.

 

Chris

Oh I've reviewed this before but that wasn't hardly a review. Anyways, I did mention the personification of the rain which stood out to me nicely. I think by putting personalities on things like that can make us appreciate and understand those things more. Once we start seeing the characterization and beauty of an object/thing it becomes a piece of us we cherish. Poetry speaks life with words, and you did just that! Very nice, Chris.
Have a nice day!

Heart searing. Your writing is as always beautiful. I wish I had something more profound to say than that. But I don't so I'll leave it at that.

What is more profound than being touched that deeply?
Sadness mixed with begrudging acceptance...I always carrying g that little nugget around with me in a lint filled pocket. Good write... got me thinking.

Coffee and the early mornings "darkness" leads to many pauses...
Sometimes the reintroduction of a person, or a place, and maybe just a remembrance of a time has power that we are unaware of

...and sometimes we well KNOW that "power" all too well...
This is a beautifully written poem.

The instant I saw the title, then started reading, I was put in mind of one of my father's favourite songs; 'Rain' by the Pussycats. He used to play it frequently when my my sister and I were children. I haven't listened to it for a while now, but you beautifully evocative poem makes me want to hear it again.

Beccy.
