The world sounds different on a rainy day,

as if it has slowed in its frantic rush to accomplish things

that will seem so inconsequential tomorrow.


Delivery trucks seem to take longer to shift gears

as they make their way along the puddle-filled streets

along the same routes they take every day.


The grass, trees, and shrubs all seem to be slowly stretching,

as if waking up from a period of hibernation and lifting their heads

and looking around at all that has changed around them.


Like the grass, trees, and shrubs, I also feel that I am waking

from a period of hibernation, at least a period in which I stayed

in, out of the heat, and prayed for a day just like today.

Thanks be to God.

A lovely write, Virginia. Who was that person who told me they didn't write poetry. I think you do a very nice job when you set your mind to it. Well done. Keep writing.

Blest be those that can identify with Nature's Majesty.

I have enjoyed the reading of "On a Rainy Morning".

I salute You, Poet.
