Nighttime Rain


Photo by Sourav Mishra on

Lying wide awake during a lonely, rainy night

Hearing the moisture-rich drops taking flight


Trying to return to a dreamy sleep, without much pause

Failing because of music, those steady drops will cause


Remembering Eddie Rabbitt’s song of a beautiful sight

Declaring once again, he truly loves another rainy night


Imagining each rainy drop bouncing about

Wetting the ground with its showery clout


Rolling eyes over walls of a darkened room

Realizing morning light will arrive very soon


Recalling rainy mirages, memories hidden in the past

Hoping this precious rain shower will continue to last


Thinking of growing puddles, continuing to flow about

Watching rapid flash flooding, with creeks spilling out


Driving down a wet, shiny road with lights burning bright

Blinding radiance bounces back to impair one’s eyesight


Wondering where seldom-used umbrella went

Requiring it now, despite being twisted and bent


Smelling the soft fragrance of a summer rain

Realizing its sweet fullness will slowly wane


Allowing the steady patter of rain to sing

Falling asleep before the new day brings


Dreaming of future adventures in a drizzle so wet

Knowing it will offer more than anything seen yet
