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

made real in the person, the flesh, the birthing
of the savior; to finish the lament, the
dark judgment of Amos, the wheel of Ezekiel,
