Poem: Rain


As I sat cross-legged trying to meditate

I was distracted by the pattering rain outside

It was a constant beating in my head

Like a tiny drumbeat of a thousand natives tapping their rhythm

Trance-like I traveled back in time

And was once again a child

With my nose pressed against a moist window

Peering outside at the damp world

Hands leaving marks on the glass

Fingerprints of me

Wishing I was outside running in the sun

Or the days in camp

Not really a child anymore, but not quite a grown-up

Laying in the cabin on a night with a raging storm

Snuggled in my blankets

And a counselor reading, taking us somewhere else

While the lightning struck and thunder boomed

Sometimes even blowing raindrops through the openings

Feeling safe

Or the time my girls were with me to celebrate an Uncle’s birthday

Caught in a downpour in a city

Running like banshee, disoriented and wondering where we left the car

Hysterically laughing

Rain is cleansing, annoying, flooding, biting, gentle, life-giving

Desert rain, tropical rain

Tap Tap Tap

Too much can destroy, too little whither

And with the sun can bring a rainbow
