Some Soft Rain

A soft mood dampens hanging branches with rain
Grey billowy storm clouds bump against sky
Dripping off eaves wetting dark barn boards stain
Like artists' pallet fill a weather eye

Long may your soft drips make me feel lonely
Tearful drops running down my window pane
Look out from blurry eyes will clear only
Even to fix my poor visceral brain

Often needed quiet moments perplexed
Thinking deeply about how things are swept
Many choices not found in sacred text
A place where no easy answers are kept

Only life and love will wash clean from lust
For if we are just a machine we'd rust

About this poem:
Deeply reflective of the cleansing spirit of a soaking rain washing our minds and bodies like some rain gutters of the many webs and debris caught up in them that might cling there in a very surreal and refreshing way!!!

There is something about rain Yankee,
refreshing, depressing, sparkling etc...
I wonder how many adjectives there are to describe it? Maybe as many as there are to describe the colour green? laugh confused
I see you have a lil' volta there at the end, don't often see them in the sonnets written here. Very classy

thumbs up purple heart purple heart

Thanks Bill.....there is nothing more reflective and soft as the steady drenching of soft soaking rain......and water is just so representative of cleansing.....the air.....the dust off the leaves....and sins off our bodies..... wine
