New Rain

New Rain

A Poem by Fabian G. Franklin
"

Perspective changes in the weather

"


 

Gray morning seemed to me

Little more than

Bitter coffee grounds

And whiskers in the sink

 

Cloudy rain that smothered

Day undiscovered

Nothing but a curse

Upon my universe

 

Now, listening to the rain

Absent of the pain

That came from being alone

I can face the dawn

 

Here, beneath my blankets

I offer silent thanks

For the love of a woman

Who made me a new man

 

Let morning rain or shine

It matters not to me and mine

Not to the sleeping child

snuggled safe and warm

In her crib or to the woman

cradled in my arms

I really enjoyed this poem Fabian, good work. I thought the following stanzas were particularly powerful:

Gray morning seemed to me
Little more than
Bitter coffee grounds
And whiskers in the sink

&

Here, beneath my blankets
I offer silent thanks
For the love of a woman
Who made me a new man

I like the underlying premise a lot - a poem about a man being rescued from monotony/sorrow by the love of a woman - it's always resonated with me and it's a classic thread of literature.
