Best Poem of Raymond A Foss

Capturing The Sound Of Rain

Listening to the timpani
the rhythm of the rain
the rap, the tap,
the ratta-tat-tat,
the staccato of the drumming
on the roof of the van

The storm raging ‘round us
in the stillness of the parking lot
trying to drum to the beat
on laps and the steering wheel
keeping time with the chaos
the randomness of the clatter

Too few drummers for the task
capturing the sound of rain

Read the full of Capturing The Sound Of Rain

Hope In The Words

There is Hope in the words
of my poems, your words
shared with me, my fingers on the keyboard
flowing from them onto the screen, the page
Faith in my walk in the world
in the knowledge of you, your presence
Your abundant Grace
Love in my heart because of the ways
You touch my life
