Dressed in mourning robes lonely and heartbroken she sits in semi-darkness by the glowing embers rocking herself to the rhythmic unbroken sound of torrential rain... a therapeutic balm gently easing the pain healing her heart’s misery. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - U Pick the Form Contest Sponsored by Broken Wings © 21st September 2017 Placed 4th

Paul, such depths of sadness expressed in your melancholy imagery but also hope expressed for her spirit's healing in the freeing, cleansing, soothing baptism of the 'therapeutic' rain. I love the rain as I find it soothing as well. A beautiful write my friend, congrats on your fine placement. Warmest wishes ~Susan

Thank you, Susan; your insightful remarks are an apt follow-up to this poem. I love the sound of rain and I have spent much time watching it falling outside the window. I do believe in its therapeutic powers! ~ Warm regards // paul

Paul, I can strongly identify with this beautiful piece, as after a very stressful day, it's so much easier for me to relax and fall asleep if I listen to the sound of thunder storms (whether natural or artificial) in the background. Congratulations on your well-deserved win, my friend! BRAVO! Pandita

Paul your write was my personal favorite from the winners list. Your words not only create a sad soul trying to heal through their heartfelt loss, but you add the dark surroundings. For some rain causes depression, and here it creates an escape of venting the pain by rocking, letting out a physical emotion of coping and possibly healing and closer. Loved how you wrote this...

Haunting imagery, beautifully conveyed. Living in a rain forest, I appreciate and relate to the rain's hypnotic trance and glimmer of hope within the gloom. Superb writing Paul, a joy to read you:) a fave
