Like Cleansing Rain

Such contemplating that the poets do. They sing of God, our spirits to renew. With Mother Nature often they’re in tune And offer up their verse to sun and moon. They praise the sunset over a blue lake While pondering man’s purpose, and they ache. . . They ache for all that earth can never be, For dreams they’ve lost, and for humanity. And when they ache, their words are filled with pain Which pour out from their soul like cleansing rain!

A fave for me... incredible how much ground this covers in ten lines. Impeccable IP and rhymes, most importantly though, a profound synopsis of what poets aspire to. Fantastic!

Good luck in the contest! My sister is not crazy - indeed she has been a good friend to me and raised two children. She just couldn't understand how God could take away her baby brother.
