Falling Rain

Rain keeps falling

And falling eternal

Falling of the rain

Life is filled with

Moments like this

Summer rain keeps

Falling and falling

A bliss for the dry

Land to recover

Gray Summer Sky

The relentless rain

Eternal and life giving

Will fall for 24 hours and

Returning the island to normality

Emptying it quickly from

Holiday makers and alike

Creating a silence only broken by

The rhythmic sound of rain

Falling on a corrugated roof

Communicating something or

Nothing in it’s hidden pattern

Bleaching the illusion of

Progress and meaning

The winter kept us warm

So that the summer

Would makes us wet and cold

Soon the summer will be over

Only the bitter rain remains

Whatever season

Falling

Throughout the millenniums

Spring In November

Rainy days in the city

No end in sight

The rain is

Making the soil

Fertile and full of life

A sentry letter in the gutter

The streets filled with water

And people with umbrellas

Hiding away from the

Relentless rain
