Rainy days

Rainy days

A Poem by

I love the sound of rain

Gently falling beyond my window

That early morning mist

The gentle shroud of grey

Clouds hide the sun

A giant blanket of white

Dark horizons promise darker days

Nothing more thrilling than rain

There is nothing that makes me happier

Rain brings life.

It creates a new beginning

After a long assault by the summers sun

It refreshes the scorched earth

When summer is over and done

The rains come

New buds spring from the soil

Dotting the countryside with green

It grows, spreading like wildfire,

Bringing beauty back to the land.

 

Rain suppresses my moods

It clouds my feelings

Making me pleasantly numb

The stress of life melts away

It pools at my feet

Left to be dealt with another day

I sure do love the rain.

Wonderful character of rain:
"Bringing beauty back to the land."
You have depicted many of the lovely virtues of rain.
You may continue to love rain for the rest of your life.
Rain is such a blessing.
If it has causes some trouble,still it is for good for us all.

You are most welcome.
I love it , I feel the same about rains ... I started to hate the summers and love the rains .. it used to be the opposite ... your poem is beautiful as you are .... I would skip last stanza as the Poem is perfect ending with "Bringing beauty back to the land.

But its only my personal taste xx Yossi

I sure do love the rain also. What a beautiful poem about the rain and how it brings new beginnings.

I like the way this was written as a general observation, which was done well through your imagery. What gave the whole piece an added poignancy was the final few lines ... where you changed tack and it became suddenly personal.

The rain sure does make us contemplate things and inspire us to think and write. A nice piece, which the reader can visualise sitting at a window with the rain lashing down outside.

I like this, but I would suggest that you get rid of the unnecessary words. For example, if you trimmed the beginning to;

I love the sound of rain
When it gently falls beyond my window
Early morning mist
Gentle shroud of grey
When clouds hide the sun
Behind a giant blanket of white
Dark horizons mean darker days
There is nothing more thrilling than rain
Nothing makes me happier

This is merely a suggestion

I get the SAME feeling... ya ever watch steam rise from the street after a storm and it's like spirits rising from a battlefield...? i'm weird! but nice work, i real dig that it has a rhythm and feel that is presumably yours! good stuff :)
