The Rain – A Poem

The Rain

By Caryn Moya Block

The rain falls so hard it bounces up when it hits the ground.

The sound of pounding, like a chorus of drums in my head.

Waiting for it to end, I close my eyes and hope sleep will let me escape.

Into a dream of sunshine and light, where my spirit will lift again.
