Gogyohka for light rain


wind in the poplars

hisses sea-whispers

and booms over the hills

with the bellowing notes

of the organ of the deeps


rain on the meadow

falls a flurry of steely grey

tossed by the wind

moving on

leaves crystal drops on window panes


moon tossed

from cloud to herringbone cloud

the ocean sky swims

with shoals of light

halos of rain-promise

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. Oh, I love the images in this one–the poplar wind and the swimming moon.
    I know there are a bunch of yours (and others) that I haven’t read yet. I’m on a writing frenzy. I just took a quick break because I discovered I’m hosting dVerse tomorrow. Oops! 🙂

    1. Thank you! I’ve been taking poetry breaks from the WIP that is reaching a complicated point and I keep getting distracted (by handfuls of rain, the sound of the leaves… anything).
      Good luck with the hosting. I’ll call by for the prompt 🙂
