day 4

Rain falls as if the heavens could cry for all the years of toil upon the uneven plain – the years of holding herself against the pain, the times of overwhelming joy.

Rain falls as if nothing else mattered, and the wet feathered friend sings regardless of its nest fostering young life dampened in mist.

Rain falls as if mud were a king demanding his due, lakes fill and streams flow where once only desperation cracked the face of empty promise.

Rain falls until a telling wind passes and again the far coming of hopes refreshed return, and the bright happenings of a yellow atomic god.

let your body meld into your spirit’s wet, and love “as the small rain upon the tender herb.”

    Rain falls to bring the flood of words to the poet so the world will know the beauty of his prose
    Rain falls hoping to quiet the mind in a collective hush so the whirling Willows can capture imagination
    Rain falls bringing tender seedlings to battle through the earth in ready for spring
    Rain falls so that life is cleansed in the purity of creation such as the writers flow from his uniquely gifted ink…..

    Love your rainy days friend:)
