Long Walks in the Rain

I think i have known
rain too long

— apologies to e.e cummings

I know life—
Its joyful
And sad strains,


Bur to say
Something significant
I draw on my past
And pain.

It’ sa rosary of repetitions
Where I get lost
In insignificance

So I retreat
To a sunny beach

To escape the fog of me.

...

But truth doesn’t go away

Returns nights
When I lie awake,

A parade of images
In my brain,

Run and mar
In a falling rain.

...

Up among the stars
Lies a sea of tears

And after all those years

I find rain
Wipes the slate clean.


Oh, I still dream
Of that damn beach

And struggle every day...

But now I'm beginning
To cherish

Long walks in the rain.
