Spring Rain--By Rick Parise--United States

Spring Rain

Free as the wind
in song and verse
visions tumbling within my soul
quenching my poetic thirst

As vibrant as the wild daisy
each teardrop upon my face
I twist and turn in posy
lapping up the springtime rain 

With each pitter patter 
racing to greet my heart
I melt with each breath of beauty
drowning as I impart

Forever in crystal showers
as I fall back to paint the day
from the rumbling clouds of dynasty 
quickly I am taken away

Free as the wind
in song and verse
touching the grace of purity
beauty falls upon my heart

  1. Rick, I very much enjoyed your poem, especially the last verse. It touched me at the core of my being since I know that purity comes by the grace of god and is indeed so beautiful when it falls upon my heart. Thank you for sharing your talent.
    Your Friend,

  2. Rick, this is so lovely...rain the purifier. How creatively you have worded this tribute to my favorite element. I love it!
    Blessings for a very wonderful New Year! Aloha, Connie
