The Rhythm of the Rain
© by Aaron Cornett
Clothed in wakefulness and clarity,
my heart beats in quiet cadence
to the rhythm of falling rain.
Falling in love again, deeply moved
and accepting an honest surrender,
I exist with the steady pounding
upon the roof overhead;
A rain that is wind driven and called forth
from the depths of a desperate heart.
Soon all will be satisfied, sated
and complete. Silence is maddening as
Deep roots ply for the hidden water.
