Walking Into The Rain

Into the Storming

into the storming

Maybe its just because I know there is no one else out here
that draws me into the storming
there is electricity in the air all around
and alongside of  gods and natures warning

The scent of burnt ozone on the air  and the sounds
the ever imminent and  distant thunder
But there are spells out here that draw me
this  storm this  spell I’m under

In the pasture  the horses  watch me as if to see
what is different about this man
why does he walk in instead of away
yet I think they’ll understand

Standing beneath oaks  older than all of life itself
I listen to the gentling  rain
It washes away all that is wrong
it cleansing a soul of pain

We may never find the answers to life’s questions
nor know the cause  of eternal strife
but walking into a storm is cleansing and kind to a soul
may we ever have these  storms  in our life

Sometime in my life, I started to write about my life journey, in poetry, in story perhaps to sort them out and enter them into a place of safekeeping. The soul of the writer is perhaps best described in their words, emotions and thoughts. If these poems or stories touch something inside you then maybe I have succeeded in sharing. I will not write about my self in profile, because self isn't so important in writing. Only the journey in words and the sharing are important. Why would we say "Now about me!"... I'd rather write about life, nature, serenity ...

    Nicely expressed of that cleansing of rain and storm, in a metaphor for our turbulent lives. Some lovely phrasing and imagery Ed. Very much enjoyed.

    Lovely piece Ed. The rain is so soothing . i loved the play on how even though there are so many bad things occuring in a rainstorm they are necessary to cleanse and reinvigorate the soul. Nicely penned.~Paul
