Sometimes Rain

 

Sometimes rain

 

Falls from the sky

and from my eyes

when heavy clouds lay low.

 

Sometimes rain

 

Pours down big drops

weighs down my thoughts

my petals bending so.

 

Sometimes rain

 

Goes on for days

the storms they rage

 and howling winds do blow.

 

Sometimes rain

 

Brings peace in grief

in the belief

that from it we will grow.

And sometimes rain

looks pretty on our petals.

  5. The rain drops look so lovely and refreshing on the petals but I hope the sun comes and dries the rain drops in your thoughts and your eyes. Sending warm, sunny thoughts and energy your way.

  12. “Be still, sad heart! and cease repining;
    Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
    Thy fate is the common fate of all,
    Into each life some rain must fall,
    Some days must be dark and dreary.”
    Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

    Rain is cleansing and nourishing even although it can be dreary at the time 🙂

    … amen! Your poem soothes my soul like a warm summer rain, Julie!
