A Poem a Day 2015 (28): Streams #2minutesgo

This one is written for writer JD Mader's 2-minute challenge on his website, Unemployed Imagination. If you fancy writing something, head over there right now :)


The rain will never stop
if I can help it
where I wander
nothing grows
nothing meanders
nothing tells a truth
when nothing else is needed
so I flow
as a river in June
rushing forth
caressing stones
making the dull less so
casting up a mist in my wake
as a mirror shines
reflecting the true self
so I carve a path
where the dog laps
and a robin trills
I bring life to it all
Before the coming
Of the rain.
