Poetry Blogs (Rain)
We were full of ourselves in those days
Life was a treasurehouse of pleasure
We had our fill of the world's offerings
And took its ripened fruit at our leisure
Rain doesn't matter now you're gone
Nothing seems important anymore
We madly moaned about the weather
The God-given gale onto the shore
But our love took it all for granted
Selfishness was the order of t...

he could not make her out
at close quarters but afar
smiling yes but acting no
near, yet distant as a star
like rain falling half-way
a tide trapped out at sea
an infant sapling stunted
a blossom without a bee
brows furled with doubt
mouth unstable not still
eye contact fraying, lost
signals iced by inner chill
curious blend, rare alloy

We were ambling in leathers down Florida Mall
When the sky caved and showed us its power
Like lightning it dropped, pure cats and dogs
What hip street cats call a power shower
Rocking and rolling and wringing wet
All conventions shot out of the window
The beat of Nature kicked in from nowhere
Man, can you dig that wind blow!
A summer storm cools down the street...

Its been dry for far too long
The air's got parched and dusty
I'm praying hard for rain to fall
My life's been arid and musty
I see how you led me to love you
That easy flattery your smiles
I fell headlong into your arms
Tripped by those practised wiles
If only it would rain today
And wash away my tears
Is that thunder that I hear
Cleansing as it nears?...

Don't stop when the music stops
Even when the fever drops
The castanets have ceased to play
The romance in your eyes I see
Could I take you away with me?
I'll take you through the rain
Where the light remains
The only rhythm of the day
Where the sound of the patter
Which really doesn't matter
It's insane that the rain
Could make me feel this way

It’s raining it’s pouring
Storm clouds warring
The heavens have opened
About to get drenched.
Splish splash, drip drop
Spit splat, plip plop
Tipping it down
Falling from the gods,
It's raining stair rods.
Raining cats and dogs,
Nice weather for ducks and frogs

Eye Of The Storm
The black clouds gather
Heavy rain drops splat
There is iron on your tongue
The bitter taste of storm
Head thick with thunder
White light splits the sky
The trailing crack rattles windows
A cat cowers beneath a bush
Shivering in its fear
The deluge follows
Straight javelins of rain
You lift your head back
As the heavens empty

To hang on a wall of my empty room,
I think I will need a picture of rain.
Hitting the ground, and springing up to ankles,
Rain wets the socks and trousers from below.
My eyes chase along
Roof-edges, streets, sidewalks,
--tick, tick, tick--
Checking all, one by one,
To find a dark brolly,
And a woman in black enamel shoes,
Lightly treading the...

Only dew drops now remain
atop blades from the torrential rain.
The lightning strikes
lessen in succession.
But the dew remembers
from where it came.

Rain-drops are laughing,
Of cherry trees,
Onto the garden
I am alone

Darkly damson silky petals flop
hanging gently in mid air.
They cluster together splashing colour vividly amongst the greenery.
A spray of white blossom hangs over the dusky velvety leaves
and their light accents glow.
In the background water makes its way downhill,
flowing gently between the mossy stones
and the feathery ferns waving in the breeze.
Bird song completes...

It Rained Today
It rained today
Breaking the strangling heat
But it wasn’t a cleansing rain
It didn’t dilute the colour of our skin
Or wash away the blood on our streets
It just soaked
The lonely man erecting barricades
So that McCars could McQueue for McBurgers
As consumerism kicked back in
And the deluge began
The air felt clearer though

I don't like your colour,
Can't hear your noise
You cover streets in winter,
Keep my heart there,
In grey lands.
Let rivers overflow
And my heart sinking
Into colourless melancholy.
I want to be
At a sunny place.
I want to feel the golden light
And warmth on my skin.

Meet me in the rain
So I can explain
The sun’s gone
And it’s been too long
I look at your pictures on the wall
I shouldn’t keep them up for too long
I miss the sound of you down the hall
So I avoid the sound of you at all
It’s as if the flood gates of heaven opened up from God’s weeping
Deep down I know it wasn’t you I should be keeping

The rain falls
My soul weeps
All the secrets that we keep
Thursday 23rd January 2020 5:02 am
bodies tangling, intertwining
we get lost in the moment,
in the rush
drifting off to our own space
No time like the present
we’re looking for answers in the pouring rain
If you could get by
for one night
without looking for the answers
If you could
for one night
love me just the same
Everybody needs something
