Tears From the Sky

Tears From the Sky

© 2012 Kirby Sanders

Rain on the rooftop,

tears from the sky.

Great booming sighs

or sobs
of thunder

and emotional flashes of lightning .

Mist is heaven trying to cry,

the rain is heaven’s success.

Weep, weary sky, weep –

or perhaps it is only

Thor yawning?

I love the rain, every single drop.

Every tear is a prayer.

      Thank you. I tend to write from the gut – straight up, little editing, no concern about classical forms (unless something just happens that way – very unusual). An I don’t worry if a piece doesn’t answer its question — Life seems to offer more questions than answers.
