Poem: “Rain” ( Poetry Form: “Lune” )


Poetry Form: “Chain of Jack Collom Lune

I heard sounds
Of clouds stuck to sky
Like one’s bawl

And their tears
Falling from a great height
Kisses the Earth

Wondering, I asked
What is this, I saw?
Mother said, “Rain!”

    These are so lovely,,,I don’t have the right adjectives to tell you how special they are to me,,they struck a chord,, perhaps it’s the Mother’s response,,,,🙂

    The last stanza especially is very touching.

    Oh yes, the child’s question, and the mother’s answer…there is an eternity of motherhood, and of history, in this.
