Poem A Day – Day 19 – Prompt is Rain

Hello and welcome to Day 19 of my month long poetry adventure! A poem a day for the whole month – crazy! But also super fun and challenging.

Today’s prompt, which the OctPoWriMo organizers are providing every day, is Rain. They gave us words and pictures and advised free writing for ten minutes on rain.

I followed the free write direction today and it took me to an odd place. I actually love the rain, and could have explored several different ideas. I have great affection for all things British and always remember the rain while I was in London, so I had a few London thoughts. But I may use that for something different because I kinda went off on this tangent. Hopefully you’ll like where I ended up.

Have a great week, y’all. Please do come back and visit during the week as well. Thanks!

After the Storm
By CJS

The drops tracked down the windowpane, slowly
then racing to the end,
as if being chased.

She stared at the window
and the raindrops
and tried to think of peace
in the tracks of unfeeling rain.

She was not so unfeeling
and at times wished
she could be,
sometimes she felt too much.

Did he feel anything?
Or was he just a raindrop
racing across the window
of this small part of her life.

She turned away
from the rainy window
And thought to herself
The sun would be out soon.

    1. Thanks so much! I really appreciate it.

      By the way I have enjoyed your poems as well but haven’t been able to leave comments. I get a message that says my credentials can’t be verified or something. I get that on some blogspot blogs I think? Anyway, your poems have been great. 🙂 Hope you are enjoying this challenge as much as I am.
