The Rain Knows

by Timothy   May 15, 2021


I hear the rain pouring down,
A lovely little melody in this town;
Its been some time since we felt your kiss,
And the plants are preparing for a metamorphosis.

The rain is cooling the air,
Pleasing the work-horses and beasts-of-burden everywhere;
The streams shall replenish,
And repair the drought's blemish.

But for me, I stand in the sweet poetic verse,
Letting the water and earth amalgamate and disburse;
Washing away my sin, and all the so-called reality,
Can anything really bring back that practicality?

    I agree with Ben, this is a thoroughly enjoyable poem. As for the cathartic power of poetry, it certainly works for me.

    The spring rains have the power to wash away so much debris and usher in so much life and accompanying fresh hope. A well rhymed poem which I thoroughly enjoyed.

    All the best,
