Of Sorrow

Sorrow is the night’s rainstorm lashing an impoverished psyche wandering lost with loss ‘neath weeping eaves in murky-minded alleyways without an umbrella. Susan Ashley July 29, 2019 ~ First Place ~ Premiere Contest: One Sentence Metaphor In Free Verse Sponsor: Jesse Rowe

Mourning Since Dawn

Why must the mourning come
with every dawn?

The sky is crying again today.
I heard her sobbing
as I laid in bed.
She would calm down
for a little while,
then it would start up again.
Did I do something
to upset Mother Nature?

I watched in solemn silence
all afternoon
as her tears
streak down my window pane.
I wonder what I can possibly do
to comfort her.
There are no tissues large enough
to wipe away
a streaming flood of sorrow.
Maybe this is just Mother Nature's way
of grieving,
and soon it will pass.

The newborn flowers
open their blossoms
to receive and embrace
her gift.
Mother Nature is so beautiful
even when she cries.

April rain fell like whispers on grass,
Soft and light like a half felt apology.
Dark clouds wafted overhead in shamed silence.
Distressed by a cold winter’s return. 
Daffodils wept and bowed in fading despair,
My Father’s favourite plant was slipping away. 
As my Father had done and now my Mother too
Lost to a world of cold whispers and sorrow. 

Dead flowers I had placed on their grave so light
Were fading like a memory, a star un-bright.

Still the rain whispered but failed to cleanse,
The grit of sorrow that inhabits my heart.

Thinking of You

A curtain of rain obscures my view,
    as I gaze out my window and think of you.

You've been gone for many a year,
     leaving only memories for me to hold dear.

And hold them dear, I do indeed,
     embracing them when I'm in need.

You see, the rain poured down on that day too,
     as I gazed out the window, thinking of you.

A knock on the door and two uniformed men,
     regretfully informed me of your life's end.

spring rain falling hard
down old cemetery road
lie a dying rose

scattered deep within my mind
I walk alone lost in time

Unavowed promise

Forlorn tinged faces reminiscing old times
Where smiles did not enshroud an ache,
And the grueling effort it had to take,
Cries of help in their throat they were caught
Feeling a shimmer of serenity not a bit distraught, 
But that's the thing about pain,
It might leave for brief moments, 
But comes back like an unavowed promise from grey clouds to carry the rain.

A Boy in the Rain

A crying child stands
Wet eyes and trembling hands
Quietly turn to stone

What is the cause?
Who can be blamed?
Time doesn't pause
For a boy in the rain

October Rain

I remember the tears
with yesterdays pain
that dreadful year
of October rain

Darkened skies
with clouds of grey
gloom which followed

Hidden in shadows
fate lurked at me
a game of life
which took three

With each breeze
of passing wind
fate just laughed
at me again

Cold wet rain
stained my face
salty tears
I could taste

As I looked
up to the sky
I could not help
but wonder why

My soul screamed
with terror and pain
that dreadful year
of October rain

Rain Falls Unbroken

Dressed in mourning robes 
lonely and heartbroken
she sits in semi-darkness
by the glowing embers
rocking herself to the
rhythmic unbroken sound
of torrential rain...
a therapeutic balm
gently easing the pain 
healing her heart’s misery.

My day

As the wind grew, and the clouds rolled in, the droplets of rain hit my page. I continued to write. Nothing was going to stop me. I, was going to finish. It started to rain harder. thunder cracked, and lightning flashed. Soon, my writing was smudged. As I continued to write, a thought came to mind. Was this the life I had wanted? Or was I just a puppet, in the hands of someone else? I had finished, and just in time. My world grew dark. I knew this was the end. I had written my will, as I knew this day had come. It was time for me to go, and leave it all behind. I, was done here.

Kiss the Rain

I Kiss the rain for it hides the tears 
As they flow down my face
All the bottled up sadness and fears
They won't look out of place 

For no one can tell that I'm in pain 
How heavy my heart may be
When I stand up tall and kiss the rain
The drops will hide so no one can see

They say the rain will cleanse you
Just Like a shower or a bath
So I'll use the rain to renew
To Decide upon a new path

So kiss the rain when you need to
No one will know but you.

It rained cats and dogs
My begonia bit the dust!
Dead-drunk begonia!

The Rain Lily

The majestic, strong-willed beauty I hardly know
Hued in perfection of limpid white, pink and yellow
Ever steady and loyal to the rich soil I’ve never sow

Rendering sweet bloom, even if, my summer waned
Alive always at the onset of rain…of sorrow and pain
At the lowest ebb of life, a smile, from you I truly gain
Nurturing in silence the swollen heart, again and again

Lovely charm of floral trumpet shaped lives, without me
In a tiny pot, but never raise a hue and cry, for me to see
Lonesome solitude, besetting her when cold winters pee
Yet, she keeps and maintains a rare elegance, just for me

Tears falling from Angels eyes 
gathering in spreading pools 
over the sterile parched earth
grief for beauty lost

Rain Painted Rose

dont we all
deep within the walls 
of a 
rain painted rose
moments once fresh are set ablaze
whose bones are jewel encrusted 
within our deepest reds 
the scent of saints and dreams are 
glancing off a soul of glass
so very briefly glowing off the face-
as every breath tends to climb toward light
reaching the softest edge giving away..
tumbling down 
a stairwell of thorns-
the clowns of living cycling
round and round a face forelorn

turned to dreamware we're juggled
(dented circus pins)
between hell and hope..less
the kiln of god
the devils twisted rope-
dont we all
live within the walls
of a 
rain painted

My begonias died today
They sucked up all their water
It rained cats and dogs!

Rhythm of the Rain

The rhythm of the rain
In sync with my heart
Falling slowly against the pane
Tells a story of so many days apart

I feel them on my face
Slowly and softly they flow
A warm bittersweet embrace
One not felt since long ago

Replenishing life on earth
Scouring away the pain
Bringing about new birth
Each one a memory to remain

Of life and a bond of love
Laughter from days long gone
Now falling silently from above
Something I always depended on

Angels crying in their ethereal plane? 
No, these tears are my own
Falling slowly with the rain
Two were one and now one is alone

The pain I put in the ground.
For such a precious thing.
The family enjoys their meal.
They plant their leftover kernels.
And wait for me to tend to them.
An endless cycle in which happiness is born.

The glaring sneering Sun has
Beat me down to the pavement.

The hot the heat
The flaring has won.

The. Violent engagement beastly
Perspiration beseigement

Beaming steaming gleaming
Dazed AMAZED seeking shade
From deathly rays.

Prone to bemoan the scorching
Phase of days of UNFALLING RAIN

Nick named SMOKRD AND turned
Churned and burned

Through Dark Rainfalls


Through dark rainfalls,
how can I sleep?

A nightmare crawls
through dark rainfalls!

It pries the walls
and tries to seep 

through. Dark rain falls...
How can I sleep?

Categories: farewell, grief, loss, metaphor, nature, rain, tree,


whose bony fingers
stretched above gloved branches,
you danced in the sunlight,
elegantly bowing
for scampering squirrels
and gifts of birdhouse rings.

whose springtime blossoms
scattered petals
for make-believe weddings,
you caught up children
and hugged them tightly
in games of hide and seek.

I run my fingers
along your weeping scars
where Earth’s fury tore
your hand from mine.
Splintered memories,
I have less air to breath.

I Promise, A Boundless Love

Even the rain falls,
The world won't flood, no more.
For I am now to shed a tear
Of a wounded heart where you are here.
As long as the moon lights up the dark,
The fire of love will stay at heart.
If ever the rest might start to fade,
I promise to remain the same.
For my love for you is boundless,
Won't easily change, nor easily erase.
And I promise, not to hesitate
To visit you always at your grave.

the rain

the rain finally came 
washing away
my footsteps and pain

and cleaning the slate 
for another’s faith
- and another rain

Softly the Rain

Softly the rain falls upon my face your memory I can't erase.
Alone I stand now silently remembering how it use to be.
How I would caress your face and dream about a far off place.
Where we would sit beneath the sun making love until the day was done.
But one dark day you were taken from me now all I have are these memories.
Softly the rain falls upon my face....
