As in Come the Rain

As in Come the Rain

A Poem by ROXANE DORSEY

As in came the rain
untamed 
fastened cold showed
wetness rolled

as in came the rain
sun refrains 
stage freight come night
dampen shadows 
spotlight concrete crystals

as in came the rain
silhouettes curvy black
Marvin Gaye grooves mood
rainbows elude 
grayish night 
kisses reign
you & I

Good write, Roxane. You paint a vivid scene and set the mood so well. Marvin Gaye was a particularly good touch. I hear his voice in the darkness.

love poetry since it has been embedded in my mind deeply way back when I was 4 years old. A very good reader in pre-school. Nursery rhymes tuned me in even deeper. more..
