Random Poem:

Rain Storm
gem_grrrl

no one chooses the rain when
 1
silver shocks the liquid-electric
 2
pour-down in a low night sky
 3
 
 
you stand alongside me watching time
 4
drip to almost predawn wrapped
 5
inside outside streak-wet droplets
 6
 
 
we hoped it would choose
 7
us, the creatures whose hearts await
 8
dark, parched as sands burned bitter
 9
soil of earth, of dust or crumbling clay
 10
 
 
we are the realm of the heart
 11
loam of soul deluged by rain
 12
moistened chambers once crisped
 13
brittle and dry now flooded so when  
 14
 
 
our mouths full of rain water
 15
choose each other
 16
lightning kisses
 17
