The Blood of the Gods

So sweet the scent of gentle rain
That cleanses skin on nature’s breast –
The patter of its soft refrain
Awakens earth that was at rest.
The blood of gods, its fragrance pure,
Feeds the womb of hungry spores
And floating free, their fresh allure;
Bouquets of life that breed and soar,
To quench the memories of we
Who now run carefree in the fields
And drink in all we smell and see,
The redolence of natures yields.
    Again the soft rain gently falls
    The sweet ambrosia we recall.

Craig Cornish, Written Nov. 11, 2013
For Nette Onclaud's Fragrance of Rain Contest

    Hullo, Craig. I will comment on your actual poetry later(and probably delete this comment). Just dropping by to say I read a certain blog comment of yours regarding an "audacious meterist" -- your comment is good! Ha! Made me chuckle.

    wow, you did a great job with your sonnet. I like how you used the imagery of rain as blood of the gods. You could say it was their tears as well!! I am seeing more good sonnets than ever at Soup lately and yours is in that number.

    craig, you mentioned Ann of Green gables and the Lady of Shallot scene. Yes, I vaguely remember that. I LOVE those kinds of dramas. Now let me see your poem here.
