mademoiselle la pluie

Hello there rain, I suppose you had to come back sometime didn't you?

Here you are an old man who likes to keep the sun abed, but in lilting tilting french you are a young girl eager to make the world grow.
I don't know which of you I like better-
The you who cautions me warm and safe back to my bed and lets me curl up with silky black coffee
Or the you who takes my chin and tilts it up with loving fingers so that my face is awash with the new
Maybe I just love you

P.s. The mists are back. Please guide the ships home to harbour and don't let the one crash into the jetty like last time.


  1. Beautiful words and images as always, the rain has returned here too, but today he's a stubborn man who's icy, bitterness stings... such beautiful personifications of the weather.
    "I give her sadness and the gift of pain, a new moon madness and a love of rain."
    -Dorothy Parker "The Godmother"

  2. it's raining here too. soft.
    the first image, that was the rain today.
