Rain is

Rain is
by John O’Brien, Jr.

Rain is as soft as silk
As soft as your skin
Working away the edges
Of mountains, of stress
While upping the levels of Rheumatoid induced pain

Rinsing away, adding a layer
It helps the hurt of my mind
But hurts the ache of my body
Picnics cancelled
As new grass is fueled, thirsty reservoirs replenished

Cleansing, as it dirties
Ending a drought so hot it shimmers
Flash flood
Possessions float on by, away
Pretty flowers snake and then burst above the compacted mulch

The death dealing
Life giving
