Hard Rain

 

Hard Rain

Hard rain on my face,
On my body like an alkalade,
No where to hide,
No where to go,
Encompassing every inch of terrain,
Clearing the large webs of pain,
No choice,
No voice,
It runs through my mind,
from that child left behind,
Stripped to the bone,

Hard rain on my face,
Warm drops replaced,
With strength
Once a child,
Now grown,
Not feeling,
Ever alone

    dear Adri,

    as a child, I loved to dance in the rain with my arms outstretched! I felt it cleansed me and it made me feel brand new! I love your poem!!!

    *hugs, Cat

I know bob Dylan is my generation not yours. if you want to read good poetry. like I do, visit my profile page. they are great, but I'm to modest to say any more. peace be with you. and welcome. onepauly

          Yes I grew up to Dylan songs and I do know the song you are speaking about. He was a master with words. My poem is a completely different topic than Dylans final measage. I just began this journey so, all I can do is learn. I will read all your poems and let you know which is my favorite. Thank you!!!💖

          Adri, this is a great poem! Love it! I always like the rain. Not so much the freezing rain when I was living in Montreal. But for the last 30 years living in Hawaii, I have been enjoying it again. Tropical downpours though are something else.

            👍 Love the Big Island, have visited many times even danced in the rain there!!!!

              Must have been on the Hilo side, Kailua-Kona is rather dry. You are right, the Big Island is beautiful. I do prefer Oahu though.
