I have missed the Rain
On a day like today it is nice to just watch the rain fall. Here in New Jersey it started late last night. It poured, then it stopped. Now it is a steady rain and I realize I missed it despite the wet winter. Something about those April showers and how rain means Spring is here.
Enjoy a little poem I wrote.
April Showers Bring May Flowers
Kidding! I can’t rhyme very well, it is not a talent I posses. Same for spelling but at least I have spell check for that.
I have missed the rain
It falls outside my window,
Pure and clean.
It brings a promise of tomorrow
It does not bring hate, or death
It does not feel
It does not hurt
It is simple and full of life.
It brings a lesson.
Rain cannot be stopped
People stay inside
People fear the rain
They do not like to be wet
And it is inconvenient
But where would we be without it?
We would not have plants, or water
We would not have food
We would not appreciate the sun
And the warmth on our faces
We would die.
I have missed the rain.
What are your thoughts on rain?
