The Rain Watcher

DSCN8589 2.JPG

Far from home,
the air was warm
the clouds ominous
from within, I looked out
as rivulets poured
into a stream of consciousness
I ignored the thunder
the flash of light
I ignored shelter, mindfully
I sniffed the petrichor
wafting from the ground
it anchored me
at one with earth
I watched the rain
I’m not sure for how long
it may have been a minute
or an hour,
when the rain faded silently into memory
and that flash of light, now a beam
shone brightly
on the book of life
titled Carpe diem

a dawn bird

  1. Hi. A lovely nature poem!
    Can I give you a blogging tip? Word Press allows us to use up to fifteen categories and tags on our posts. If you’d like people to find and read your poetry, choose relevant ones and use the full amount. Check for ideas. Your Categories and Tags will become your blog’s filing system over time, so choose them wisely.

    It’s a good idea to get rid of Uncategorized as your default category. Replace it with Reflections or Musings or Poetry — something relevant to what your blog is about. To do this, click on Settings. Across the top of that page you’ll see General, Performance, Writing — hit that one. Categories is first on the list that pops up. If you go into that, you can change your Default category and add other pertinent categories. You’ll see the ones you’ve used so far (like Poetry) already listed.

    Happy blogging. 🙂

    1. Thank you so much for the tip. I really appreciate you taking the time to write and guide me. Although I’ve been blogging for a few years I rarely have time to check out things beyond my page, I have to confess! I’ll definitely check this out.
