After Rain

After Rain
The cool winds sweep
After rain, walk
Upon the wet grass,
Stroke the dripping land.
Silver crytals drop
At the wind’s breath, pass
From the leaf’s green cheek,
And, like soft salt tears, descend.

    Hello to you Gorge, it has been awhile and I still thank you for talking to my friend in need, it did so much.  We are now great friends and all is going to find its way.
    I am writing today to tell you, that you are a petal of a rose.  You see I decided to stop going maddly through the computer blogging like a wild child everything of interest.
    I decided to stop and smell the roses….
    And you are the petal of MY ROSE,  Moon.
    Reflects to reveal
    A portrait
    A pretty pose
    Hides the thorn of the rose
    Holds the mirror
    Questions the soul
    puts the mirror down
    Hot daze
    the dry earth with cracks
    rock and twigs,
    bugs small like ants.
    Shadows where the sun does not bake.
    The sun blistering down like opac.
    Broken earth
    billions of cracks
    bugs scurring from shade to shade
    like a symbolic dance.
    Plants drooping for need of water
    they must ache….
    and the hot sun rays
    could make the earth quake.

    Beautiful poem!  I\’m impressed as all get-out.
    I didn\’t know we were relatively near neighbors… I live at the foot of Mt. San Jacinto and see it from my window. I also have a view of Mt. San Gorgonio a little further and the Big Bear area at a distance.
    And aren\’t we having some spring weather in the midst of winter! It\’s glorious but I just hope we will get some rain so we don\’t have another drought.

    I love the poem. Dreamy images called to mind. I used to love lying in a warm bed at night, watching the rain on the window.

  12. Charlotte says:

    Ah, there\’s nothing like a bit of rain to make you feel at home! British weather can only be loved by its own people!

  13. linda says:

    There is a light beam at your window
    where threw it\’s cracks the wind does blow
    inside the beam the particals seem to sparkle
    and the glass seems an illusion to se warble.
    The flow of warm steady light, all illuminating
    as if to send forth a message from the universe
    a glow of glory, like a radiant sunburst
    to tell the story of revelations, and lights imponderable.

    Your poem reminds me of Tennyson (I think that is how you spell it).  He once wrote a poem about eagles and for some reason this poem\’s similarity reminded me of it. 
    The rain is my favorite form of precipitation.  Without a doubt in my mind.
    Hope you are well.  I apologize for my absence.  I hope to be back soon!
    Take Care,

    Good day!

    Thanks for your comment on my blog.  I always try to remember to give credit for whatever I use.  I guess it\’s the songwriter in me.  I think the shift I\’m going through is a good one.  I think it started with my lyric about which weighs more reality or magic.  Hard to explain..but I think I\’ll come through just a little more understanding and more appreciative of everyday life.

    Good evening, Jorge…
    I am not enjoying the wintertime. I don\’t ski; I haven\’t any ice skates. So I have no use for the freezing cold and snow. I really need for it to be spring.
    Doggone it… your beautiful poem makes me think of late springtime, a warm day after a light rain shower and me, barefoot in the grass…it\’s not making the waiting any easier.
    Thank you for sharing these elegantly simple, evocative words…
    As a poet, you sparkle like those little rain drops, my friend…
    Peace and Love.

    Beautiful images.  I love the second stanza.  You should write more poetry!
    But as for the reason for my visit, I just wanted to say thank you.
