The Rain


Rain is gently falling now
it’s been a real long day…
Didn't get a whole lot done
sometimes it’s just that way…

Hours pass into the night 
and thunder starts to roar... 
Lightening paints the sky above
the rain begins to pour...

Think I’ll read a book tonight
sit near the fireplace…
Pull the quilt up over me
a pillow just in case…

    Oh so witty and Wise! Somehow beneath that dark night sky, I felt the rain pouring down, the thunder roaring, it brought me back to that particular night! Awesome, your poetry.

    I love the imagery Jon. I can almost put myself in the picture listening to the thunder. Well done. It has good flow as well.
