Rain Secrets

So quiet in the house
with everyone asleep
sitting in the dark, motionless and calm.

Listening to the rain
as it taps on the sill
like little children whispering in the night.

Every rain drop holds
a secret brought to earth
floating silently inside each silver sphere.

True knowledge from above
brought to earth in hopes
the mysteries of life will be revealed.

Raining Memories

Rain so soft
pure and sweet
like feathers of light
dropping from the sky.
Soft mist upon my face
cleansing me
releasing me
mingling with tears
flowing gently down my cheeks.

Memories
of childhood
running in the rain
laughing innocence,
eyes sparkling with wonder
clarity
catching the rain
in open mouth
wet hair streaming down my back.

Memories
pure and sweet
stolen  from my mind
I want them all back.
Childhood of simple truths
loving me
bringing sweet smiles
bringing sweet joy
time missed living long ago.

Storms Passing

Torrents flailing
wild winds lashing
tearing the pain
from deep within

Stripping the truth
from the dark past
cleansing the heart
of agony

Tear the hatred
that eats my soul
and ruins me
for love so pure.

Anguishing thoughts
released from hate
spill out into
the storming rain.

Replace my pain
with bright thoughts of
sweetness and love
cleansing my soul.

Silent Joys

Do you hear the wind?
It calls out my name
urging me to follow
down deep ravines
of good will and dire sights.

Do you hear the wind?
It calls out my name
anxious for me to see
desirous thoughts
of love and tranquil nights.

Do you hear the wind?
It calls out my name
and implores me to feel
tranquillity
and peace from heaven's lights.

Do you hear the wind?
It calls out my name
in silent calls of joy
calming me
allowing me to sleep.

Cleansing Rain

Tossed in the night
on raging waves of fright
dreams of forgotten times
plaguing the restless mind.

Waking in fear
and screaming in the night
realizing the cries
come from pain left behind.

Release the pain
while standing in the light
of stars in velvet skies
release the tortured mind.

Let the rain cleanse
so the heart soars in flight
upon peaceful heavens
as pain is left behind.

In the Rain


Standing in the mercury silver of the rain
deafening silence of time disappearing
washing pain from my inner most soul

Running in quiet streams down my face
mixing with tears flowing in quiet misery
washing clear the gnawing agonies of life.

Standing in the mercury silver of the rain
hoping to find a bit of peace within
washed by the diamond bits from heaven.

Running in quiet streams down my face
silent tears carry the hurts and sorrows
washing clean the palette of my heart.
