Your rain rains more than mine – A Poem by Faye Nunez

Your rain rains more than mine
by Faye Nunez

The rain will always come
to drench the world in tears.
Sometimes it comes in little sobs
or loud cries of pain kept for years.

The pavement is wet with sadness
on this side of the street.
But once you reach the corner,
it is a dry road that you’ll meet.

It’s when you need an umbrella
that it’s sunny on the other side.
It’s when you run and duck for cover
that somewhere, you can just walk in stride.

Don’t fret over a little rainfall
Be not disheartened by a drizzle of rain.
Somebody else is stuck in a downpour.
Someone’s drenched in a severe hurricane.

Alleviate by Kenneth P. Gurney

Alleviate
by Kenneth P. Gurney 

I awaken to a sky
as dark as nightmare.

My prayer for rain
blots out the moon.

But it is not my prayer
but my verbal repetition

of an echo I hear
emanating from the trees.

It has been dry so long
I cut the honey into cubes

and set one out
on the table to dissolve

to sweeten the rain’s
bitter surrender of its wings.
