Michael Shepherd Rain Poems

0050 Morning Rain In Early Autumn

Today the soft rain is
not falling, rather blessing,
as gentle as mercy,
making the air

0221 Rain In May

It’s May and it’s raining
and I’m standing at the front door
as if I were the first rain itself
on Eden, blessing and blessed

! ! Haiku-Ukiah: Night Rain In Kyoto

on the window screen

night whispers secret witness -

! Rain Is Never Blue

The rain blurs and beats at the window
like mercy frustrated;

it has fulfilled its magic promise,
