Springs Rain

inspirational poem written after a long illness and hospitalization


Spring's Rain


By Ellen Karman

I woke up and took some time

to pace the streets in town.

The clouds scattered aimlessly in the sky.

They did not worry me,

as I had no destination.

And, when I got there, a raindrop greeted me.

I thought how fine!

Because it was the first drop of spring,

a drop which brought change, change without destination.

I was not anxious for I knew; rain is inevitable, just as change is.

My conclusions sent me home. And there I pondered each drop.

Then it began to pour and I became lost in my thoughts.

Thought’s without destination.



spring showers bring rainbows

Afternoon spring shower, it had poured,then brought the most beautiful double rainbow I have ever seen.  My Illness slowed me down  and while I was recuperating and after learning how to walk again, I noticed things I never would have previously.

Dear Koffee Klach, Isn't it funny how a rainy day brings out the creativity or gives us the permission to lie around and watch TV and rest? There is something about rainy days, and I just saw the weather for tomorrow and it's calling for rain and it's Sunday so I'm looking forward to doing what strikes my fancy, I bet catch up on documentary's or reading and snuggling with my dogs as my aching back is soothed by that but not the rain. Oh well "two out a three aint bad." Thank you for reading my poem. Ellen

I am always more creative when it is raining. I loved the comparison of rain drops and thoughts. Up and awesome.

Victoria Stephens, it is so true, I didn't notice all the beauty in the world right out side my door until I was just learning how to walk again and when I got home the first year I was really slow, I was 27 with two babies and I thank God now I was shown the beauty of just slowing down. I'm glad you liked the poem! Ellen

Very inspiring. It's amazing how much we miss of the beauty around us until we find time to stop still and notice.x
