  • My View of The Funeral

    This was probably the smallest funeral I’ve been to. We crossed the pool deck and I waited for Jojo to pull our her mockingly bright rainbow umbrella out of the house in order for us to not get completely soaked. We made our way outside, and I co...

  • Pining for Rain

    Kirk sat on his porch waiting for the rain to come, not just waiting; willing, needing, desperately wanting. The sun slipped down behind the mountains far in the west, like a climber whose strength was failing him one inch at a time. It had been a year...

  • It's raining, why did it have to be raining?

    The tires span in futility on the tarmac, dragging water back into the air, while the cars motor went from a low grumbling thunder to a cacophonous scream of effort. The man checked in terror over his shoulder. The door burst open capturing rain as it ...

    The gray cloudy sky, swollen with crystal tear drops, rids of its sorrows.

  • Untitled Poem #5

    Come on, get out of the rain. There’s fires in the street that even this downpour won’t extinguish. You look so cold, so wet, so elusive as you wait under the crimson clouds that you can only see in the middle of a raging storm. Come on, g...

  • Whether the Weather of Either

    Sam struggled to stand upright, slipping once or twice in the mud. Jesse could hardly breathe, let alone speak. Light from the windows rippled through the sheets of rain, casting everything in a tenuous glow, a fragile and mercurial reality. Wide eyed,...

  • Something in the Night

    “Something goes here.” I spoke the words aloud, but they got lost in the wind. Leaves and blades of grass flitted across my field of vision, obscuring the already muddy issue at hand. If there was a moon I couldn’t see it. If there we...

  • When The Rain Came

    We splashed about in a fit of nonsense, our shoes soaking up the puddles we jumped in, merrily. Drenched, we ran about campus, laughing maniacally at each other for jumping in the unknown depths and running around without umbrellas. Later, we huddled...

  • hold on

    Rain splashes over the muddy park, like someone dumping dirty bathwater over the entire city. I see a lone figure sitting on a park bench, watching the carousel spin. He sits slumped, begrudgingly holding himself upright, an overwhelmingly melancholy f...

  • They Say The Grass Is Always Greener

    Rain. Why does it always rain, always pouring, always wet, always drip drip dripping right outside my window. My tired feet drag me through puddles with the depths of lakes. It always rains here. It always has. I am so tired of it, so bored with the t...

  • Dissonance (Day 68)

    Rain poured nonstop from the sky. It wasn’t a hard, heavy rain nor was it a light, soft rain. Rather the quality that described it best was persistent. Ceaseless, it beat against everything slowly eroding sound, soil and sanity. Neither wind nor ...

  • Unpleasant Surprises (Day 77)

    Gingerly touching the side of my head with my fingers, I scraped away gravel that stuck to my skin and hair. There was a little blood but nothing seemed to be currently bleeding. I righted my bicycle where it had tossed me off like a prize winning bron...

  • The Bridge, Pt. 1

    “There’s a woman out there.” Josy wiped fog off the window and pointed between the rain drops. “On the bridge. What is she doing?” I peered out over Josy’s blond head. “She’s looking for her husband. They were on a camping trip and ...

  • The Bridge, Pt. 2

    I awoke to distant screaming. Within a minute, I was in the main room with five of the other adults. None of us spoke. All of us carried our weapons. The night was black, any light from stars and moon shrouded by clouds. We had left the bridge up for t...

  • Picnic

    The first drop fell just as I took the first bite into my bologna sandwich. More drops followed quickly behind it. The air around me exploded with shrieks and squeals. People sprang into activity – picking up blankets, stuffing things back into b...

  • Quit Hounding Me

    “Aw, quit yer yappin’, Mackey,” the gruff voice rumbled against the patter of rain on the tin roof. “Jolly, I’m just sayin’ that she was…” whined a response from behind a sweeping spotlight. Mackey checke...

  • Bad Decisions and Visions

    Rain came down. Rain came left, and rain came right. Some rain defied all logic and came upwards from the heaving deck. Miguel swayed, a turbulent green attempting to show on his darkened face. He had been at sea forty-seven days, more than he’d ...

  • The End of The Beginning

    It should be raining. The world should stop. Every being on this earth should stop what he or she is doing and join everyone in a planet-wide moment of silence. The sky should rip itself open and spill oceans onto cities in every country. Yes. It shoul...
