Rain’s Elixir (NaPoWriMo)

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #43: Rain

Sincere thanks to my readers for your patience with me…I hope to get back to regular blog strength, and attention to your posts, soon.  Until then, know that I keep you close in my heart Ennle…enjoy B J’s song at the end.


Heaven’s sterling pitcher, regal, pours—

With purposeful imperative relentless rain

Comes, driven to create obscuring pewter

Screen…concealing cloistered heart whose

Penitent prayers murmur repeated pleas

For explanation why psyche’s desert returns:

Barren of green shoots, fruit…dry malevolent

Spirit, Death ever threatening…uncurbed zeal 

To usurp clear cohesive Reason’s rhythmic pulse.

Sweet cleansing rain, unremitting drizzle paints

Holy fingerprints of God on windowpane…cooling

Comfort, His salve touches fevered thoughts chaotic.

Soft lullaby, falling nectarous drops…

Rain, elixir for soul’s sore brain.
