"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

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.

This is beautiful and heartbreaking somehow....inspiring and simply truthful. Love the whispers that echo behind the eyes.

Hi... good listening to you both here and on your page.
Raindrops, rainfall, rainstorm- all with a different intensity, a different sound and vision “behind the eyes”. Your poem is emotive and fragile, reaching out to yesterday and tomorrow. Beautiful language and imagery in the lines. And the silence after the rich presence of sound- deafening, echoing- yes. The death after life. Excellent write my friend

Thanks Chris. Always a pleasure.
The rain can produce many different sounds and I love listening to all of them. Rainfall can evoke many emotions and many memories. I like what I have read here Chris.

Thank you
