Poetry Friday


Nature keeps putting words in my head.

We had a rare rainstorm move through last night and today. (It never rains in Southern California, especially not in June!) The lovely sound inspired me to try another poem. I overshot the 15 word limit by three. Oh, well.

Have a great weekend everyone!

RAIN
It rouses me from sleep.
The drip, drip, dripping
Steady, unrelenting
Gentle bouncing
Slipping sliding
Whispers
Of renewal.

  1. Very nice, Sherrie! Oh, btw, I got news that my books are done and will be shipped to me on Monday. I can't wait. I'm going to get together a book blog tour, so maybe we can include the interview as part of that. Sound good?

    Love the poem and that SoCA finally got some rain. 🙂

  2. that's beautiful!

    I must have rotten luck, I've been to So. Cal 3 times and 2 out of the 3 times it rained like cRaZy! It was funny because all the locals kept apologizing for the rain. :0)
