Gentle Summer Rain ll

Featuring:)  Giorgio Veneto

She writes about Fall's beauty in the rain 
the falling raindrops' dance ascribing thence 
bespoken verse that lightens her refrain 
before the time they met - her steps commence. 

She listens to the soft and rhythmic thrum, 
her love turned to escape and cloudy string 
where nimbus mistle fell, tears to become 
their kiss of Autumn was symbolic ring. 

The first light cotton mists with summer rays 
and skyward cheerful laughs adorn the land, 
their ceremonial dance diffuses grays, 
affectionate embrace, where dreams expand. 

Upon September's sky the raindrops gleam 
with half of hidden Sun to laugh and beam.

    I love to walk in the summer rain especially at night along the shore, When i was young it seems like a life time ago, i'd sit on a log and walk the fish come out of the water just for a split second and than dive below it's true during rain storms you could watch them do this it was cool cheri

    I read several of yours (just now) and, though I see the power in your words, I feel unworthy, due to lack of true poetic understanding, to comment. This one is simple and lovely.

    Hi Linda, how I Love the rain, just to walk along and think as the rain falls upon me. I must look like an idiot though. This is one fine piece of poetry. How gently each picture is brought forth. The kaleidoscope of words painted into such a compellingly beautiful write. I shall walk in your rain any time. We do have gentle rain ocassionally.I really liked this one Linda. Bravo to you both. You have a wonderful Christmas and a happy New Year. I hope 2014 brings you all you seek. Yours...MIKE.

    "Till you I never saw the sunset on Biscayne -- Till you I never heard a gentle summer rain." -- This phrase from "Till You" was brought to mind. You have captured the essence of the beauty of just listening.... Love ya .... Jake
