Listen to poem:
Oh I love the sound of the rain
   a softly spoken spiraling sustain,
marathon runners against the grain
   all soon lost within their drain...

One slows down near my eye
   a staring contest with a somber sigh,
could it be a suspicious spy?
   as my tears match their coasting cry...

It then speeds up again 
   leaving satiated sorrows within its stain,
for it utters no words to complain
   only the remnants of its strain...

Avoiding languishing lanes to leap
   where whispering wallows weep,
formless in its kaleidoscope keep
   racing down the window to sweep...

Longing lugubrious raindrops skewing
   victimized amidst my viewing,
each one in a ponderous pursuing
   a dismal deluge in their renewing...

A jaded journey of their repeating
   sharing thoughts upon our meeting,
all is dry after their completing 
   memories once shared now fleeting.

Fine poem my friend. Who doesn't love a nice summer rain? I'm off to my dictionary to see what 'lugubrious' means. Have a great day.

Hi my friend, this is such a special, wonderful write. I so love the rain. I used to love to walk as the rain fell, don't do it much now though. Your poem brought back this love. As I sit here, writing this comment, the rain is falling. Your words describe it so well, I love the content of this write, it brings such joyous visions to my mind. You describe the Angel's tears so well. A Fave. have a wonderful Wednesday. Ypour friend always....Mike.

WW, I wasn't aware of anyone who cherishes the rain as much as I do; however your magnificent tribute to the ecstasy of the rain let's me know I am not alone in my passion for the rain. I adore this beautiful poem that so exaults the the weeping skies. This goes into my Faves! Congratulations on your deserving podium win! : ) xxoo

A very imaginative and creative write about raindrops running down your window pane, some going skew bringing about a dismal deluge, even down your cheek, first staring you in the eye, perhaps a spy! Running with the rain - a gem talent, talent and more talent ^WW^ This is more than likely a win! Hugs, Jennifer. Jennifer.

I love to watch the rain. It purifies the air and feed our vegetation. Alas I don't fancy running in the rain. Best for a win though.
