Ravens in the rain......a poem

I took this photo on one of my own bad days lol...!
I took this photo on one of my own bad days lol...!
This one ? I only wish I could have taken !
This one ? I only wish I could have taken !

A day that begins dark and dreary
can we expect anything but ravens and rain
A summer that begins this wet can
only end much the same

No sense trying to lift spirits above
this low pressured weather
They're all too sad ......
with souls so in tether

A secret I will reveal .....My smile is
but on the outside of me
I'm just barely hanging on myself
yet no one seems to see

Yes ....yet although only the ravens and the rain
and I seem to comprehend
Life's just a raucous of sorts
and then it will end

Seriously ? No ! .......You know ?
If I can only give you one thing today?
It will be to gift you a smile.......... :-}
before the rain washes us all away

I love to read about rain, about as close to it as I get out here in the desert.

Ed... this is beautiful, though the sadness within is bothersome for me... and look at you, still wanting to make the days of others better!

This is beautiful on so many levels, but I particularly appreciate it as my neighboring villages and counties have been washing away, their homes and all! The rain can be beautiful and devastating all at the same time and this one, weighs heavily on my. Let's dry up the rain with smiles!

Hugs, Ed
