. . .at The Raindrop's Edge

Kenneth, loves satire and writings to spotlight others, but he also has an "addiction" so to speak, to dramatic and abstract/prose poetry.


If the soul is tuned, and the soul is silent . . .

The silver raindrops cover red pain so deep. . .

The rain. . .

Running as forever stands through horizon name . . .

The rain . . .

Never talks to lonely men with heartless dreams . . .

Taking by inch, each rancor'd word of text. . .

The rain . . .

Noble as a young man's dreams, of pirate's schemes . . .

The rain . . .

Setting one ship toward cloudy beams of south . . .

Girl dancers of lost island stories told by mouth . . .

The rain . . .

Dizzy, blurred in footsteps sitting silently by firefly . . .

The rain . . .

Lightning strikes o'er a hundred sheepfolds shy . . .

The rain . . .

Their shepherds doze one dream of silken sprites . . .

The rain . . .

Makes the soul aroused to days of infant fed . . .

A soldier's bleeding red . . .

The rain . . .

Dancing on the roofing of last night's promises . . .

Walking quietly sitting without lips to watch the rain . . .

Clouds righteousness majesty . . .

Never a moon cry's delicacy . . .

The rain . . .

The animals sleeping easy while raindrops spill . . .

O'er the rocky hill . . .

From one dawn, a lover's thrill . . .

The rain . . .

The rain.

Writer's summary

Four souls sit watching, listening, and feeling a slow rain fall. They share each of their experience.

      Hello, Doris -- wow! Thanks for your touching words. I mean it. I wish that I had untold wealth and how I would share it with you and all of my Lovable Followers. I mean it. I left you with lots of happiness, peace, and joy in your day or night (whenever you read this).

      Nicer words about rain than what we have going on here, Kenneth. The rain is about to wash us away. You paint pictures with words very nicely, my friend.

      How beautiful. I love the title, the image and the soft delicate and reflective feel of this poem.

      Funny, where I am, its parched dry and just 20 minutes ago some soft rain has reached us and the cool breeze is kissing our warm cheeks.

      Your poem is heaven sent:)

      Thankyou Kenneth.
