Sleet #poetry #rain #winter


snow forest

Looking up to curse nature’s tears

you freeze as you plummet toward my plot of dirt

the contingent of birds and woodland life shivers

no one wants to venture out

bombarded by winter’s calling card

with one added degree of warmth you thaw

no longer a harsh sleet

your cascade is gentle as you brush against leaves

caressing and nourishing the brown earth



 Rain is grace; rain is the sky descending to the earth; without rain, there would be no life.

John Updike

  1. Love your positive take on the cold and rain (great quote). Rain washes away the old and the dirt, and maybe the soul too – it can be so therapeutic sitting and watching the rain sometimes 🙂
