Kiss the Rain

I stand here by the lakeshore, and I smell fresh honeysuckle as I kiss the rain. A memory that I cannot curtail wafts bitter sweetly to me, and again it’s May. . . the night you came to me by moonlight. The air was permeated by perfume from blossoms colored innocently white. But now it’s summer; yellow is each bloom. When plump upon the vines, sweet berries, red, will be swooped up by birds and carried away. I stoop to touch a stem. How soon has fled my flowered youth, and now this day chilled grey, I bow in downpour like the vines bent low while raindrops turn to tears and - glistening - flow. For the Contest of Gail Doyle

    U drew me into two romantic seasonal moments...I don't know which one I like more, the scent of honeysuckle with moonlight, or being swept away by birds at summer...G R E A T S C E N E S! Good luck with this contest.

    This poem glows radiantly and with feeling. I know I've said this more than once in different ways, but I can really feel nature breathing in your poetry. And also, I have seen The Hours, and that poem was actually inspired by it. Perceptive. Looking forward to coming back again, Andrea. Best, Jeremy
