This photo is incredible and I just had to share it with you al It has been my inspiration for this poem.

 

RAIN (inspired by G Bebs photograph of Rain)

Her eye is cold and grey
Her tears like raindrops fall
Her shadows the darkest night
Her anger the storm that cries

See the fury of the sky
See the clouds collide on high
See the sun fade to black
See the turmoil she creates

The clouds so pregnant dark and still
The load it carries must now fall
The thunder rumbles its deafening roar
The lightning pierces the silent pause

People scatter under shelter
Pavements now are soaking wet
Pathways turn to muddy puddles
Petals fall upon the sand

Children cry and hide away
Crashing sounds of thunder linger
Crescent streaks of blinding light
Creating havoc across the sky

Rain like tears fall to earth
Rushing over, round and through
Reaching rivers flowing free
Resting finally in the sea

Rain the planet’s quenching thirst
Rain that causes flood’s distress
Rain that never ceases to amaze
Rain the life blood of Earth.

Does anyone else have photos of Rain that they have taken?
