Rain | Sunday Observer


7 March, 2021

I feel a sudden gust of wind,
A thunder clap up there.
I feel another strong gust of wind
and rain falls everywhere.

Dark clouds appear in the sky.
And icy hand gripped my heart.
I hear another thunder clap
and I jump with a start.

I was playing in the garden,
when water dripped down my nose.
And it dripped everywhere
down the garden hose.

The rain got heavier and heavier.
I screamed and ran indoors.
My mother gave me a cup of cocoa
And a soft red blanket that touched all the way to my nose.

Can you hear the raindrop
On the rooftop?
As it bursts into the gutter
And disappears down the dark, dark pipe.
Then it crosses the road,
As if it is a boat
And floods into the river.
As I watch
This cycle of rain
A million questions
Fill my brain.
How is rain born?
And why in pictures
Is rain the shape of corn?
One day all those answers I will find.
One day...
