Song of Rain


Rain in my garden
Shadowed nooks darken

Heavenly scents are rising

Damp promise, divine
Every leaf, a shine

Soul and spirit reviving,

I am pretty sure I did back when I wrote it. Sorry your computer is acting so slow. Grr. I changed to FireFox because Internet Explorer was acting so awful especially when scrolling. SuZ

Another excellent poem. I think we write on similar themes, with similar voices. Let's stay in touch.

You're far too kind. I haven't been on the Soup in over a year and I feel bad for leaving everyone in the dark... I've just been busy with jobs and such. Not a great excuse I know... but I hope you may forgive me...

Of course...I do that a lot...life gets in the way and the longer you leave it to check-in the harder it seems to do again.

A tremendous picture for so few words. I especially liked the "every leaf, a shine" bit... it's always so cool when that happens, isn't?

Great poem of renewal and refreshing. Seems like rain loses much significance these days when few rely on it or enjoy it.
