Rainy Day Memories

RAINY DAY MEMORIES 

“Rain rain go away

come again another day “

Childhood rainy day taunts from the porch

 

Witnessing the first drink of parched earth and

the feeble dust rise

Smudged by more intense raindrops

eliciting the scent of rain

 

Being pelted by raindrops breaking

On my forehead banging off my skull

in the dash from the porch to race around

newly formed puddles

 

Strolling in a downpour feeling like a rebel

Envious stares ruled the afternoon

On arrival home mom was aghast

Didn’t catch my death ….

 

Leaves trembling in the move from dry to shiny

Dancing from the impact of raindrops at journeys end

Starved vegetation celebrate long awaited moisture

 

Rain rain go away

come again another day

Reflections

REFLECTIONS

the passion felt then would never be equaled

love abandoned in the throes of adolescence  in his quest for more would later haunt

because there was no more

life’s full circle revealed a penitent heart in deep yearning

holding fast to faith that recompense will reverse his immaturely chosen course

Recall

RECALL

Submerged in thoughts a scowl furrowed his brow.

She studied him, wondering where he had gone to.

Wherever it was, he went there occasionally and

he offered no details. She shifted, the rustle

stirred him; with a quick smile the cloud dissipated.

Introspection completed. Where he had been mattered not.
