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 too briefly lasting.


Violently as hurricane upon once sun kissed shore

unwanted it comes as drenching slap in hatreds heat

it hurts all things without intending such through defeat.


Swiftly as stone heaved from mountainous height

unimpeded it plummets as crushing force in fearful flight

it destroys all things not knowing they already cower in fright.


Raining – Hailing – Upon me – Unforgivingly so.
