Let It Rain! - Poem by Lora Colon

You say and do the little things
A woman never forgets;
And when it rains, I smile when you say
'It's raining violets'

You hold me close and calm my fears
When we speak of plans and schemes;
And when the storm breaks through the clouds,
I know... it's raining dreams!

Your words of love circle 'round my head
Like a childrens' carousel;
You say the rain is nurturing life -
Assuring me all is well

Now, come, my love, tell me the truth,
Storms often do bring distress;
'Yes', you say, 'but as long as you're mine,
It's raining happiness! '

    To see something deeper beyond the obvious. To see blessing where others find distress. This is often a discipline that must be mastered, but to be loved deeply is one of the few things in life that can shift our paradigms of perception effortlessly, and make all the wonder and beauty of the world stand out brightly, like a copse of trees illuminated by the not-yet-setting sun. This is a wonderful, capricious, ray of light brightening my morning reverie. Thank you so much for sharing, and congratulations, Poet of the Day!

    Response to: Let It Rain! , a poem by Lora Colon:


    That Ain’t Rain! !

    I may not always hear too well, ’
    but lest you, in the future, forget ….
    when you think you hear the rain,
    it’s just the cranky …..Toto toilet!

    Ok, I sometimes hold you close,
    and you fear I have some schemes,
    but when I’m at my crankiest ….
    it’s only due to my bottle ….of Jim Beam.

    So you thought mine were words of “love”!
    Well, you’d better check your head.
    It’s not my heart which makes me say them;
    I’m just trying to get you (with me) in bed! !

    Now, come woman, tell me the truth.
    You really knew what you were getting.
    As long as I’m “yours” and you …”mine”,
    that isn’t rain. It’s just me (on you) sweating.


    bri :) [ok, yours is nice too]
