Virga In The Valley…

It’s raining in the sky,
No hopes of touching ground.
Virga in the valley,
Sight without sound.

Beautiful, mysterious darkness,
A mass collection of gray.
Is there a longing to to connect,
Or a desire to stay away?

Virga in the valley,
I see beginning, and I see end.
It’s raining in the sky ,
Strands of water, limited.

Dance in the rain today… Poem A Day Challenge, Day 11

Poem A Day Prompt, Day 11: For today’s prompt, make a statement the title of your poem and either respond to or expand upon the title.

Dance in the rain today.
~~~
Revert to your youth,
And retire the adult.
Mind not what you wear,
Forget umbrella and coat.

Twirl around with abandon,
Arms raised high in the air.
Embrace the falling drops,
Get drenched without care.

Hear music playing within your heart.
Listen to the watery refrains.
We are not promised tomorrow so,
Dance in the rain today!!!

Soaked Despair Meets Hope…

image

Her umbrella settles upside down,
Open, but on the ground.
She grasps it by the firm handle,
And drags it slowly, letting it dangle.

The rain is falling in unforgiving buckets,
She’s drenched, cold and adapted to numbness.
Her steps are staggered, her head hangs low,
Dusk is upon her, and she’s all alone.

She feels a pull, a prompting from deep within.
To set the umbrella, upright again.
Slightly hesitant, she complies,
Lifting her head to join her open eyes.

Present once more in the moment,
Awareness restored, yet remaining reticent.
Her feet steadying, weakly standing tall,
Grasping the hand reaching out, preventing her fall.

The hand of God, powerful, and nostalgically familiar,
Love, warmth, and light surreal.
He calms the storm inside her soul,
Her upright umbrella; she’s alone no more.
