My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

April 4, 2011 “early spring rain”

“early spring rain”


winter’s remnant

hangs from a lifeless sky

a thick gray veil

over the black trees

sweeping its sad feathery fingers

over the pallid face of melancholy earth


on the pale cheeks of dour hillsides

the cloud

weeps misty tears of hushed silence

broken only by whispers

of drip-drop-dripping

into dreary puddles

and muffled murmurs

of muted songbirds

silently shifting on their perches

shivering beneath ruffled feathers

as they disappear

behind a shadowy curtain

of cold fog

    This is true poetry;

    From the mountainside.

    Beautifully penned.

  2. What a fine snapshot of the day and the emotions it engendered in this poem.
