When we were Gypsies

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 Cats And Dogs

entry picture

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

Bucketing down

Falling from the gods,

It's raining stair rods.

 

Spitting, drizzle

Sunny shower 

Teaming deluge

April shower

Raining cats and dogs,

Nice weather for ducks and frogs

Eye Of The Storm

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

Water fi...

Arrows of Rain

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...

Dew Drops Remain

entry picture

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 and Balloon

Rain-drops are laughing,      

Falling

                                  

Like blossoms                      

Of cherry trees,                    

Or snowflakes,

                     

Onto the garden                   

Pond                                     

I am alone                             

Floating on,

                                      ​

Rain

entry picture

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

 

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

Cracked...

Rain.

Rain.
I don't like your colour,
Can't hear your noise
Anymore.
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

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

[2016]

Secrets

The rain falls

My soul weeps

Masquerading

All the secrets that we keep

Get Lost in the Pouring Rain

So feeble

we fumble

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

to j...
