Rainy days

As the clouds gave birth

To hundreds of limpid tears
The air became contaminated

with the fresh smell of rain
Droplets, penetrating earth’s core

melted swiftly onto its raw soil
Attempting to heal every wound

crafted by man
Vibrant colors of leaves began to fade

mimicking the sad song wilted flowers

had sung only yesterday
Hollow trees howled at poorly drawn scars

that were forcefully carved onto their skin
The Earth stood still, as if only for a moment
revealing that the waves too

understood the meaning of loss
