Morning rain falls
Resting in puddles
All along the path
As rainbows glisten in drops
Radiated by a rising sun.

No ones whistles
For the sound would break
The quiet of raindrops falling
Moist, life giving drops
Soaking into earth parched
From a now brighting sun.

By midday
raindrops have stopped
And are distance memory
In the evening
When the sun begins to fall.

Fulfilling all their duties
Raindrops wait
For another time
To fall, to drip
Most of all, to drop.

Rancour Hiding Deep Inside

October 8, 2014

Face Study ~ Illustration by Patrice

Rancour hiding deep inside
Struggling, struggling to let it out
Outside away from me
And my distance memory.

Laughter’s good coming up
Throwing out all it can
Including rancour hiding
There inside.

Rejoice because rancour deep inside
Replaced by laughter’s bringing
Joy and happiness
Dwelling too, there inside.
