Rain

By Kristine John

RAIN
.
Beginning in darkness,
stealing into our sky space,
filling nooks and crannies as you make
earth-contact
in the early morning hours
before sunrise.
.
Drizzling daytime hours away,
washing highways clean.
.
Funny how you cleanse my soul,
help me see things more clearly.
Differently than I have for a season.
.
I flatter you, Rain...
For I long to imitate you,
and help others see things
with new eyes.
