The Rain Tells Me To

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

The Rain Says

The Rain Says

It told me to go get cosy

Read a nice book and have a strong cup of coffee

The rain told me to grab a blanket and stay close to my loved one in bed

It told me to go by the window and watch earth absorb life

The rain told me to go outside and wet my face and feet

It told me to stay inside and write something sweet

The rain told me that the covenant still exists

It told me to play a soothing song


The rain told me despite what science says, there is awesomeness in the creator

The rain told me that life must have had a designer

The rain showed me that it is the life giver

As old shrubs shake up and green up to its beat

Dying plants rejuvenated and back boastfully on their feet

The rain told me of its purity

Water from the clouds is life’s surety


The Rain told me to write, the rain told me to read

The rain told me to go outside and plant a seed

The rain told me sit on my veranda and enjoy a strong drink

The rain made me ponder, it made me think

I simply hope tomorrow will be the same

Because I just love listening to the rain
