A Misty, Rainy Day

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida. .


Soft the rain fell,

after all the snow,

had melted away.

There was stillness,

hanging on the air

and somewhere from far away -

a crow was cawing.

It seemed too early,

for spring to come flying in,

but it felt so very fine.

The mist made smoky clouds,

rising from a ground,

that was still frozen,

some ice clung,

to the grass here and there -

but oh, it was so refreshing.

After freezing for so long,

I welcomed the softly falling rain,

I knew that winter,

would still come calling,

but for now it was fine.

It sure made me smile,

the rain and the mist,

in a steel gray sky,

that in the afternoon -

brought the sun shining through.

Dreams of the summer past,

of you and I,

beneath the blue summer sky,

that could turn stormy,

so very quickly

and we’d chase away the gloom.

Waiting for the rainbow,

in our room,

waiting for the sun rays,

to come shining through.

Then we would go,

dancing beneath the rainbow,

delighting in the many raindrops –

that shimmered and shined.

Now this misty, rainy day,

sadly makes me smile,

while tears cloud my eyes,

wondering where you are.

Hoping that once the new winter is over,

you’ll return with the spring breezes,

for now thoughts of you -

will just have to do.
