Summer Rain - Poem by Leah Ayliffe

Though clouds steal the sky
There's comfort in knowing the sun's not far behind
Tree's sway and flowers reach
Thirsty for the approaching storm
And so the rain falls and showers Earths ground
Faces turn sad about the darkness of the day
But I open my door quietly
With a smile creeping around the corner
I breathe in the rain,
the summer's air at its loveliest
Forget about the sadness of our human existence
Rather skip to the middle of a street
Let all guards down
Free to dance with the brisk air
Or find laughter in the depths of puddles
Look up into the tears of the sky
And let the soul soak in summer rain

    I would say this is one of your best. The theme runs all the way through. Read mine - Rain -
