Nature Poetry

Thursday Rain

The contrast of
misty gray
May green
in the treetops
out the window
tells me it’s raining
before I even hear
the gentle tapping
on leaves
and grass
and spring flowers
bowed in gratitude
for the veil of quiet

even poets bow
for the respite
stay inside
the rain says,
there’s a poem waiting
