‘R’ is for Rain, Acid Rain


Here’s a poem about rain. Though it doesn’t feel like the nice refreshing rain of on a Spring day.

Rain Falling on the Ground

Rain, Acid Rain

by Pam Kesterson

An aching response threatened by time.

Fear showering down like acid rain.

An inability to open my eyes of understanding

As if a drop of dilation

And the sunlight sensitized my pupils,

Unbearably so.

Futility seizing the moment,

to undo the progress of faith,

Like an opportunist.

Persistence is my only weapon,

And movement (however slight)

My only recourse.rainy-cloud-smiley-emoticon


Let me know your favorite rain poems since it’s that time of the year.
