It is during the rain that I write these words
A rain that is steadily falling
It reminds me of all the pain I have felt
As if a voice was gently calling

To me there are different shades to light
And different shades of being
The birds fly quickly away from the rain
And in the sun they sing

In the midst of the darkness of it all
Still we find hope to endure
The shadows of life that pass on through
And somehow we resist the lure

Just as Heaven parts the clouds for awhile
The day’s rain stops for here and now
And brightens all with reconcile

Oh, this is beautiful...
  Such a rhythmic, steady sound to it, JML. And the symbolism of the rain is very well employed here. I could read this over and over...

I love this one jer, calming and soothing to read.very nice rhyme and flow.

stalking you still...jm


 ...every moment of every day...
your still with me in every way.
every poem and song...
every rhyme and verse...
your still here...like a beautiful curse.

If it makes you feel any better, the rain speaks to me too!  It is one of my most faithful inspirations in my writing...something about it.  A calming silence of rhythm that is magical in a way...Never mind!  
Great poem you have, and I too, loved the rhythm in it.....aaahhh.

Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain....telling me what a fool I've been.  This reminds me of that old song from the 50's or the 60's.  Sometimes when it rains I find myself thinking about my life.
This is excellent JML......James

It would seem that the rain speaks to many of us JML. . . I see that I am not the only one to find both solace and sadness in its cleansing. . .

Fine words my friend. . .

      "And different shades of being"

This speaks volumes! The complexities of life don't seam so complex when seen in the right shade of light.

VERY NICELY DONE!
