Afterglow

The air, white with rain
so dense it looked like snow,
fell straight and strong
in drops huge and heavy
presenting an impervious
wall of water.

"You'd be soaked to the skin
in two minutes flat," he said.

It stopped as suddenly 
as it had begun,
leaving a strange after-light
in air as clean and crisp
as just washed lettuce.

The sudden stillness
and absence of sound
brought an eerie peacefulness
and a sharp awareness
of the hidden power
controlling one's destiny

Cona F. Adams, 9/7/11

    You superbly describe the afterglow of that sudden burst of rain, Cona. I can both picture and feel it. A lovely ending to go with it! ~ Regards // paul

    This is a picture in words Cona. All the great poems make you 'see' what your reading. Love this one. Anne
