Rain On The River



Why does it rain on the river?

Low clouds, ridiculous fools.

You can never come close enough to kiss your lover the river

Or give your desire to the earth.


The earth and the river go side by side--

Each defines the other, and yet,

They are equally faithless.

Let the sky open,

And they each offer their bodies like brides.

They both say,

"I am the one that you seek. Come home to me."


Idiot clouds, desired and desiring,

Needed and needing in a never-ending cycle--

The earth can be sated but the river never can,

And that is why you love her better;

That is why you pour yourself into her.

That is why it rains on the river.

Clever girl~
Are you not published yet?
I think you should round up a bunch of your faves and do a Blurb book!
Then you could sell it here.
Enjoy your week...I'll be back to read even if I don't comment, life is about to get busy for me. Moving, tonsillectomy for the little one...and more.
Take care of you Shay! xo

My favorite days are rainy ones - especially with a little thunder. It cleans the world...

I wonder if fog is just low cloud, or something entirely different?
