The voices of the rain.......

Speaking ever so softly at times .... this rain
I can't always tell what she thinks
though I listen anyway
......quietly

But I know how she feels
and sometimes
just sometimes
thats enough

And when it is .......when it is enough
she gives herself freely
to me
moist touches
in very wet kisses
and she means every bit of it

But when she feels unloved
there is only the heavy
painful sound
A soaking rain
and then no words
can comfort her

That is when she leaves me
once again
dancing across the waves
until she feels
she can't get by without me
and the way I listen to
her many voices on
the water

Beautiful. Reminded me of rainy country mornings and the comfort of rain pounding on a tin roof.

I've heard her too, on my roof at night

First just a trickle of sorrow

Then she weeps with all her might

She rains and she rains

She has you to ease her pain

Tears abate awhile

Then she thunders back again

Your connection with our elements amazes me, Ahorseback. I love your words and what you can do with them. My votes to you.
