Waiting For A Rainy Day

I'll write this on the back
Of a cold-tempered cloud
Aching with rain released
onto a black clutched shroud

Its another fine morning
But I pray for showers
To reflect my emotions
As I while away the hours

Seconds,minutes pass
At a slow progression
They take no heed of forlorn boys
Dreaming of their obsession

These seconds march ominously
To another breaking day
As the sky brightens to white,
to blue, not grey

As the farmers arise
And mount tractors to save the hay
I sit by a sunlit window
Waiting for a rainy day

    This is a brilliant poem! Well done, Robert. Love the last stanza, it shows such a contrast between what is important to one person and what is important to another. Good stuff. - Freedom

    "I'll write this on the back/Of a cold-tempered cloud"...hmmm...still thinking..I never wrote on a cloud!....However, i love these lines: "I sit by a sunlit window/Waiting for a rainy day"...beautiful!.... intriguing yet amazing. Continue writing,Robert. Ruben.
