Here comes the rain


Today it's raining. We've had a strange amount of sun this winter/spring and the rain feels soothing to me. Although I also feel permanently in foggy head mode. Besides wanting to take a nap I want some inspiration and some "me" time. My lack of free time in the last few months has put my trance work on hold. This has been hard for me. I did celebrate Beltaine but I have felt a disconnect internally. Hopefully I can remedy that today and do some meditation. I offer this poem up to the rain spirits.

The Rain
by Robert Creeley

All night the sound had
come back again,
and again falls
this quiet, persistent rain.

What am I to myself
that must be remembered,
insisted upon
so often? Is it

that never the ease,
even the hardness,
of rain falling
will have for me

something other than this
something not so insistent-
am I to be locked in this
final uneasiness.

Love, if you love me,
lie next to me.
Be for me, like rain,
the getting out

of tiredness, the fatuousness, the semi-lust
of intentional indifference
Be wet
with a decent happiness.
