rain clings to the fragrant cedar boughs
sparkle with lightning
percussion of rain
on the metal roof
Spring’s syncopated beat
deep pewter skies
dissolve into tarnished silver
rain on the water
clouds sit on my windowsill
waiting for me
to gossip about the rain
I also like the last stanza … Unexpected. Jane
Enjoyed this! Rain here today too, after a long spell of dry.
I especially love the last stanza–such a charming, unexpected and perfectly visual image.
So wonderful, Kathleen. There are clouds sitting on the mountains surrounding our desert, but they just can’t seem to make it over to us.
You are so thoughtful to “drop in.” I hope to post something today on one of my sites. It’s been a challenging week but all is well. Thank you for your support.
Oh I adore the closing stanza….the clouds on your windowsill, waiting for gossip. Cool! Love the pewter skies too. Perfect description of rainy days.
