The Rain Came (poem)

Updated on July 26, 2013

When the rains came

Who knew the weight of it

There were no clouds to explore


Just sudden sounds

Heard in the distance

Upon the fields were flowers use to dance

Next to the river

Which flowed into the ocean

Of endless possibilities

Who knew the weight of it


There is no warmth to it

Nor feeling of cold

The truth of it there are no feelings at all

That it should come to this

The rain which came


Confusion offered soft shelters

And reasons to hide

From the vast unknown

There were no clouds to explore


Turning toward stars

Whose richness filled my memories

There by the river

Whose ocean was the coming rain

Who knew the weight of it

I’m sorry
