Rain's Mournful Song



Wrathful tears ripen shame and sows conscience-stricken seeds of self-loathing. Scourged by the storm’s desolate dirge this flimsy canopy offers no protection as the wind-driven rain rides roughshod over me. Susan Ashley April 9, 2019

Is it just me or there're gusts of wind and the rustle of rain here? It's amazing. You're a master of alliteration, Susan.

This one has no happy ending. I like the realism. Not everyone gets the light at tunnel's end

Rain to the thirsty is a blessing, to the unprotected and homeless oft a scourge. To the crops a benefit , to the flooded property a calamity. Water brings life, tears can be from joy or heartache. Your verses highlight the the sadness of more pain when a life has already been broken.. A fav.. great and deep emotional poetry.

Your perceptive comments recognize the flavor of these tears and rain perfectly. Thank you, Robert, for your deep and meaningful sentiments and for the fav.

Some storms do treat us badly and leave their mark on us, Susan. Yet, considering the many obstacles which we encounter, we somehow still manage to keep going. Enjoyed this expressive poem and the alliteration within it. ~ Warm regards and hugs my friend. // paul

The wind has such a personality and can delight or cause fright. I love the rain but together they can over power. Wonderfully captured in your poem Susan. : ) xxoo

Yes Susan, it seems rain waters whichever seeds are sown in our mind at the time. Pray they be Lenten Roses blooming for this Easter. For He bore our Shame. Have a Happy Easter . . .

Ah, so you have Lenten Roses too. It was in April two years ago when I saw my first one. It's color and drooping pose really struck me and inspired a Haiku , (Sacrificial Flower). Thank you for your very embracing and gracious reply. As we greet each other in our family tradition, He Is Risen! george
