Rain

decorative

My year-long odyssey into the various styles of poetry has taught me many lessons about myself. I enjoy getting lost in the world of rhyming words. There still isn’t one style of poetry I would choose as my favorite to write in. July is the perfect month to create a selection of free verse poems. This style of poetry has no rules, which I find liberating. They don’t have to rhythm, but I suspect mine will rhythm because that is how I roll. One of the poems I plan to share during this month of free verse is Rain.

Rain

Moisture tumbling from the sky,

Like millions of cloud grief teardrops.

It seems as if

It’s been 40 days

And 40 nights

Since the rain started to fall.

Dark, dismal days

Gray clouds blocking out the sun,

And I wonder why,

The blue behind the black

Refuses to come.

Suppressing my desire to go out and play

At something filled with fun.

Yet another front moves through

And lightning streaks in the distance

Thunder rumbles and the rain pours

Flash flood warnings on the TV

I need a rowboat,

To float downstream.

Another day in paradise

Stuck here in my little shack.
