The Rain




Today, the rain is relentless, I believe it might go on forever looking out of the window. It immobilises me, I’m stuck, I’m thoughtful, it brings all of my emotions to the surface.  

It’s funny, how in nature flowers close as if protecting their hearts from the onslaught, while at the same time needing the rain to grow. I look out at the rain and want to cry, or at least it brings up emotions.

I look at the balcony outside of my window and notice that it’s been cleaned of dust, the leaves on the plants look fresh and webs have been washed away. It reminds me that we need storms in life. 


The rain,

laughing at me through the window,

as loudly,

it taunts me.


It pours,

like the tears running from my eyes,

as heavily,

they fall.


A crash,

thundering like my broken heart,

as flashes,

light the sky.


I feel,

that pain will be cleansed by the storm,

and life, 

is restored.

  1. I love the rain! Where I used to live, winters were like a horror story, with winds lashing and rain pouring down the glass not in rivets but wide and thunderous and I wondered where we’d moved to. Here, the rain falls, gently, peacefully, even comfortingly. I love thunder and lightening storms. I haven’t witnessed many in years, since moving here, Ive seen 3 or 4 that reverberated off the front deck as lightening lit the sky. Still, I love rain!

      1. lol I know right, living in Hardy, it could be not all day, but days, even weeks, lol. I used to laugh about heading somewhere hot in order to dry the webs between my fingers and toes. lol
