Sagacious words

Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary. ~ Khalil Gibran

Wonderful Rain

As the heavy rain washes away
The fear of mundane existence,
The grey clouds comfort the world,
With the promise of reborn earth,

And the puddles across footpaths
Come across as treacherous chasms,
Disallowing safe passage, which can
be overcome with careful navigation,

Raindrops flood the dusty plains,
With the fresh breeze of renewed life
And outlines of umbrellas that shield,
Bend from the meeting with strong winds,

As the innocence of wonder flies
Against the face of cynical experience,
Gone are the bounds of responsibility
As the carefree kick through quagmires,

Soaking those who stand unassuming
And breaking through the fickle layers,
As the force and sting of ethereal tears,
Allows for respite and a spiritual breathing.
