Word of the Day Poem: Specter- some object or source of terror or dread: the specter of disease or famine

The Specter of Rain

In the land of sunshine,
the rain remains in fable
or folly
for most of the year.

Today brought the rain, like a specter
doom imminent in the dewy drops

and this land knew the downside of autumn.

The long-lasting relationship I have had with rain
stomping swiftly from puddle to puddle
sobbing submerged between storms
slippery euphoria in the faithful scribbling of thought

I long to mirror with you.

The rain, whether fraught with cold and cough
or warm with refreshment
is the truest friend I’ve ever known.
