Ode To Rain

The only thing I love more
than a day of rain
is a night of rain,
a warm
colourless rain
that paints itself upon me
in long
melodic
lines.

There is something that sings
in the rain of spring,
something of wonder
in the rain of summer
but so often forgotten
is the rain of autumn,
a glistening bottle of leaves
and silver champagne
that shimmers upon my eyelashes
like transparent gems,
a season’s store
scarcely worth more
than a few pennies.

There is something within me
that is a desert,
a dying plain of cracked mud,
an empty cup
that forever thirsts
for another sip
of rain.
