A Poem by Mary



I sometimes wonder about the rain.

The way it sparkles as falls,

Like a gathering of crystals on the ground,

Then a disappearing act as it becomes one with the world.


I taste its essence and smile.

Feeling it sink into my flesh,

Dancing on my eyelids,

And talking with my soul,

We become friends in seconds.


What things I think of in the rain,

I pretend I am a dancer of the highest quality.

My feet slide in tune with the world.

And joy fills the air.


Oh how I wish I could take these feelings with me.

The love,

The laughter,

The belonging.

But I must leave them as the sky dries,

Returning to reality.


But I keep in mind

That I will see another rainy day,

The sky sure does love to cry.

The rain. In my opinion the way the world weeps in either happiness or sadness. And to write about it sends a challenge far harder then most. The description of rain is stunning and gives the reader a chance at some beautiful imagery. This is a lovely poem.
