Is It Rain Or Is It Fear ?

It Is Both

As the rain quietly tickles outside the window

Like a boy does to his younger brother to make him laugh

For no apparent reason except to share in each others joy

The ground soon covered by the wetness

Transforming a sunny day to something different

Where animals go in hiding

Insects go for cover

As pools of water accumulate

Like stacks of money at the bank

Each just a precious as the next

Carefully counted for and clearly noticed

Sounds of water splashing under the tires of a passing car

The driver driving too fast not realizing how lucky he is

Taking the corner a little too wide

Racing to go to work because he is running late

Is it fate that will change his life forever

Or is it luck that he regains control and slows down and thinks

Of what could of been ?

He goes on with his day without a scratch

His fears quickly disappate in the morning sun

The rain that once graced out deck with little rain drops from all directions

Beating against the wood

Then disappearing through the cracks

A rain that once touched everyone and everything for miles

Now has gone back in hiding

Until next time when we listen and we hear

A noise so familiar like the water running in our kitchen sink

Or the heavy and loud sounds of water spraying in the shower

We know it so well and use it to our advantage

Why is the water outside any different ?

That waters all the living plants and trees under the sky

Making today noisier than others

Sounds of thunder in the distance

Ringing out without notice

Showing how power and fear come together

With every bang

The trees droopy leaves

Pressed down upon with great force

I sit safe inside and watch nature calmness and fury

Only to be just a little bit leary

Hi dream- on.

Quite thoughtful . Rain . Never ending inspiration of a poet. Blessing of utmost value. Growing on farm, depending on every drop of rain helping to increase reward of our labor , rain-drops are worth of ever " thank you" to the One who sends them ...

Voted interesting .
