Before the Rain …

This is the rain

That isn’t really rain –

That comes before the rain

That will be –

But why the fuss?

Didn’t we always know the

Summer wouldn’t last forever?

If it wasn’t what you wanted

Surely there’s only your self

To blame for that?

December’s insanities,

Brewing in the still room

Begin to giggle, little

Secret red bubbles;

The dark that isn’t real darkness,

That comes before

The dark that is:

What’s next?


You have to ask?

Surely that’s the question

Best left to answer itself?

    I think I love the changing from one season to the next…no expectation, just anticipation of what it will bring….
    I like your thoughts in all their question forms with no answers 🙂
    they will no doubt make me stop to pause in that moment before the rain…
    Take Care….You Matter…
