Pleading With Raindrops . . .

Updated on July 8, 2014
I dream regardless of rain, seeking, saying outloud, I am in no pain

Savored, silken swan, with thin dreams divine . . .I stand

Seeking raindrops melting silently down

Falling, mocking me knowing “that” dream is gone.

Flickers faintly in puddles cold.


Dolls stare deathly signs at window sill

Sleepless, feelingless visions on faded hill.

Forts, Indians so wild, storybook princess and dragon of mild.

Little feet standing sweet, praying dear God please stop the seep.


We’ve worlds to sail through foggy dell—killing griffins spew’d from hell.

Patty’s nose on window blows, laughing with fingertip clowns.

Rain still falls, sunshine stalls the bluebirds seeking flight.

Patty and me, and Sally sure to be, broken in spirit by sudden night.


Thunder shivers, little rainy rivers, and eve time is near

Little lips glued to frosty panes blue

No castles climbed today.

Wishing, swishing, and wishing again, as silken day slithers away.

Lover, my lover, appear in a wink
Lover, my lover, appear in a wink | Source

      Dear sheilamyers,

      I never questioned my mom, but now that you bring it up, if you are familiar with Andy Griffith and Barney Fife, there was this one episode where Opie brings a stray dog to the office and then more dogs follow. Barney, fearing that a state inspector who is coming to grade their office for extra funds, will fail them for the dogs, takes them way out to the country to let them roam free.

      He then tries to explain to Opie that the little dogs, shorter and closer to the ground will not get hit with lightning, but the bigger and taller dogs will get hit with lightning . . .between my mom and Barney, I think my trust goess with Mom.

      Kenneth: I never heard that one either, but maybe your mom knew something other mom's didn't.

      Yeah, sheilamyers, my mom didn't let me play outside when it was lightning or play with my dogs. Someone had told her that animals low to the ground drew lightning like a magnet. Never heard of that, but she was, after all, my mom.

      Kenneth: I loved playing in the rain, but there were days it was too cold or there was lightning so Mom wouldn't let us go out.

      Hi, Gypsy Rose Lee,

      How have you been? It has been a long time since we talked. I hope you are okay.

      Thank you for stopping by and reading my hub and leaving such positive remarks.

      God bless you, my good friend.

      Hey, sheilamyers,

      Me too. And when I would sneak out and play in the rain, my mom would scold me enough that I would not do it again. You see in my early years, I suffered from asthma and it was triggered by dampness.

      Mom was a wise woman.

      That was one thing I learned early on.

      This reminds me of many days of my childhood when the rain would keep me inside. Beautiful!

      This is awesome! Pretty heavy take on the effects of rain. When rain keeps you from the outdoors you can always escape into another world found in a good book - or in poetry!
