The Rhythm of the Rain!
The rhythm of the rain – summer drumming on the roof tiles,
An elemental heart beat that leads the way of the dance!
Lost in the melody – serenading the feeling of connection,
Where daydream streaming – finds its meaning – given half a chance!
The build–up of the cloud – preparing a palette full of textures,
Painting silhouettes in shady shadows against the trees!
The gathering of greys – reaching down to touch the tree-tops,
Hanging heavy in the atmosphere to stifle the breeze!
The fountain of the mountain – with its veins of melt-water streaming,
Unlike the galloping waves that charge at each and every coast!
The pulling of the moon it rocks its influence – as it cycles through its phases,
On this cosmic tiding – the earth is riding – around the glowing of life’s host!
Witnessing the trail of your shooting star – perspective dives in deep,
A pathway trodden that leads to adventure – a silken ribbon of a thread!
Poignant junctions that meet with decision – rebound reaction in reflective pose,
A hand crafted map – it doffs its cap – running favoured highlights in your head!
Our roots they find their grounding – whether they be broad or shallow,
Impulsive connections that call home the spirit – within us each and every one!
Where we can welcome the cleaning of the air – with the flurries of winter snow,
Or in the dripping of the drops – and when it stops – we are closer to the sun!
Tender are our tendrils – spiralling onward with their pits and scarring,
And evolution expands beyond the influence of the Ivy – reaching out a hand!
To signify inspiration with its weave and wonder – as we perceive our calling,
Thoughts can lead astray – when nature’s left to play – and living is the land!
