Softly as dew upon first blade of spring’s bounty

Unannounced it comes as damp caress in passing

It changes all things to glistening life just briefly lasting


Violently as hurricane upon once sun kissed shore

Unwanted it comes as drenching slap in hatred’s heat

It hurts without intent yet still its harm sudden and complete


Swiftly as stone heaved from mountainous height

Unimpeded it plummets as crashing force in fearful flight

It destroys all things near not noticing how they cower in fright


Raining – hailing

Unforgivingly so.
