May Rain

Standard

Rain-on-the-pavement

“Let the one who thirsts come forward.” Rev, 22.

gentle rain
glistens on gray concrete
and makes pools
of shimmering silver,
clean and new.

the rose reaches
to the grey sky
asking only for drops
of life.

the green earth asks
and receives.

  1. You and Ethel, Steven, are so visual in your expressions. The simplicity is powerful, waking a sense of spiritual awareness in the reader. This is a wonderful poem.
